Is Nate Silver copying me?

(1)A few weeks ago I wrote this:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=78265

Now I turn to 538 and read this:

http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/12/sept-11-florida-a-true-must-win-for-romney/

(2) The morning of Sept 7, I wrote about Gallup approval rating being a leading indicator for the Gallup head to head numbers.

Then I looked at 538 and read Nate saying the same thing after I said it.

You guys think Nate reads DU?

If so
