Many, many thanks to Karen for telling me about this web site. It's www.fivethirtyeight.com. I don't understand any of it because I foolishly didn't take statistics, but I understood this: "As the political world's focus shifts to the second presidential debate in Nashville, Barack Obama continues to expand his lead upon John McCain in all of our projection metrics, and now rates as almost a 9:1 favorte to win the election in November."
And by the way, I'm seriously considering working instead of watching the debate tonight. I just don't know if I can take it!
