Looks like we will soon be saying MADAM PRESIDENT.
At least that is what leading statistician Nate Silver says.
Silver, the pollster behind FiveThirtyEight.com, was on The Late Show’s live broadcast following the third and final presidential debate and he put it this way: “It’s not looking too good for Donald J. Trump.”
According to FiveThirtyEight’s model, Hillary Clinton went into the debate on Wednesday leading Trump by seven points nationally, with an 87.3% chance of winning the presidential election.
Silver said it was “as though she was already 10 points ahead in a football game and Trump just through a pick-six.” He also noted that for the first time, Clinton not only led in the scientific instant polls of who won the debate, but also in many of the unscientific ones that Trump and supporters like Sean Hannity are so fond of citing.
“The problem is right now he has only about 38 percent of the vote, Clinton has about 45 percent of the votes,” he continued. “There are some undecideds left. I don’t think he did a good job of persuading them tonight.”
