538.com predicts 301 vs 236 Electoral for Obama. So why MSM polls keep telling us so close? [View all]

I really don't trust anyone else like I trust Nate Silver, and he shows Ohio going Big Time for President Obama, despite the other polls that have it undecided. Ask KKKarl Rove. If you lose Ohio, you've basically lost the election.

So we know the MSM wants to keep this a close contest for their ratings, their profit margins, and because they're corporate owned, but my spidey sense tells me this: If the media keeps pushing the meme of this election being a close race, then when these statewide voter suppression laws get passed, the voting machines flip the votes from D to R, and large D communities encounter difficulties like not enough polling places or workers refusing their ballots, the media can pretend was always a tossup and not just a manipulated meme.

We gotta get out there and MAKE SURE 538.com's predictions become reality! Here's the link to Nate Silver in the Times:
