They aren’t at all going in a meltdown. Nate Silver increased Obama’s chances of winning to more than 75 percent. They think the race is completely over.
To paraphrase Tolstoy: All happy campaigns resemble one another, each unhappy campaign is unhappy in its own way.
DU has chosen the predictably Stalinist approach. Anyone who dares point out that the rails are coming off the Obama train is deemed guilty of thought crime. Then a "jury" convenes and comes out with a decision to remove the non-sufficiently optimistic post. It is creepy.
It's difficult to even explain their warped perception of this election (which actually explains a lot about their view of the real world)
So, in a sickly entertaining way, it's worth a visit if you want to see what they're thinking.
Its laughable. My favorite thing is the complete dismissal of legit poll numbers (that don't show 0 winning) while they cling to the most extreme poll numbers from no name pollsters. They are pinning all their hopes on the realclearpolitics and Nate Silver polls.
They seriously deny reality: One thread on there today says with complete certainty that RomneyRyan is pulling out of “Ohoi” by this Tuesday. All it takes is a 30 second visit to the Romney website where it list the upcoming weeks events.
Election night should be very entertaining.
