Nate Silver: Clinton Has 88% Chance Of Winning White House
With the presidential election three weeks away, super-stats guy Nate Silver and his FiveThirtyEight team crunch the latest polling numbers and finds Democrat Hillary Clinton with an 88% chance of winning the race for the White House.
Nate Silver successfully predicted 49 of 50 states in the 2008 election, and 50 of 50 in 2012.
The New York Times Upshot poll trackers sees Clinton with a 90% chance of winning based on recent poll numbers.
UPDATE: I think it's worth adding here that Monmouth University just released the results of it's latest national poll showing Hillary Clinton with a 12 point lead. According to the survey, 50% of likely voters support Clinton, 38% back Trump, 5% support Libertarian Gary Johnson and 2% back Jill Stein of the Green Party. Just three weeks ago, Clinton led by only 4 points in the same poll.
