538's take on the state of the race

Nate has Hillary's win chances at 65% but thinks there is a "high" or "very high" level of uncertainty in the outcome. PA, OH and FL are the key states and all three are close. He thinks Hillary should be concerned that these states are so close after the money spent there. http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/election-update-10-questions-about-where-the-2016-race-stands/

1. I'd prefer 100%, but I'll take 65% over 35% and day. N.T.

2. No worries. That's just the media trying to make this a horserace

 

Right?

3. Take 538's analysis more seriously than the general media spew.

Their predictive models are carefully designed to eliminate the media noise all around us.
Anyone who does not think there is much uncertainty of the outcome, has not been paying
attention. Right now the odds are leaning in Clinton's favor. That is good, but it is
a long and problematic path to victory in November.
