Statistician Nate Silver Says Clinton Is a '2 to 1 Favorite to Win'

Silver's model successfully predicted all 50 states in the 2012 election.

Silver, who is the editor in chief of the ESPN-hosted site FiveThirtyEight has risen to fame because of the accuracy of his statistical models.

He said there might some truth to the theory of "shy [Donald] Trump voters," who might not be as willing to admit their preference to pollsters, but pointed out that Clinton has built a superior operation to help get her voters out to the polls.

As of Sunday, Silver's model showed Trump with a razor thin advantage in North Carolina and Florida, key states for both candidates. But even if even if those predictions hold true, the Republican nominee will fall short of the 270 needed to send him to the White House, according to Silver's electoral map.
