If you average the polls and add up the electoral votes Obama wins comfortably. That's been true all summer and fall. Romney did gain some ground after the first debate, but the momentum shifted back toward Obama by mid-October and Obama is now almost back to where he was at the first debate. There is no Ro-mentum, in other words. Obama is the one with the momentum, if there is such a thing.But an astonishing number of people of the right-wing simply don't believe the numbers. And on top that, they don't even seem to understand the numbers. I've made multiple posts on this topic before and this will probably be my last one before the election. Here is a round-up right wing pundits who don't understand math and their predictions. We'll find out soon enough if innumeracy is the best policy. Enjoy.Welp, the votes are mostly in, and it is clear that Obama wins. As I mentioned above, that result was clear long ago. That comment has nothing to do with partisan bias, just simple arithmetic.There are a large number of people who rejected arithmetic for reasons of their own. They all happen to be on the same side of the political spectrum. That makes no sense to me. I'll go a little bit farther. The Republicans rejecting math is *why* they lost the campaign. If you can't accept simple arithmetic, you are lying to yourself. If your path to victory includes lying to yourself, you have long, hard path.
