Oh, you're pointing out the reference in the discussion there to "Pinnacle Sports" (whoever that is) as declined to 73% probability.

Yeah that's why it said "According to one prominent offshore gambling site, Pinnacle Sports, Mr. Obama’s odds of winning the election declined to about 73 percent after the debate from around 80 percent beforehand."

As to whoever that is, Nate Silver considers them a prominent offshore gambling site which some have referenced often.

I wouldn't bet against those odds.

And I wouldn't feel too comfortable with the trend if I already had money down.
