Nate Silver Doesn’t “Buy That Trump’s Fate Is Sealed”

Axios reports:

FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver said on ABC’s “This Week” that while President Trump’s reelection bid is “clearly in trouble” due to his dismal coronavirus approval ratings and polling in swing states, he does not believe the president’s “fate is sealed.”

“We found historically that when there are lots of major news events and economic disruptions, an election becomes harder to predict,” Silver said.

“So while he’s clearly in trouble, I do not buy that Trump’s fate is sealed. A lot could change in the next 100 days — things could get worse, still, for the president. But a turnaround in the COVID situation by the fall could make the election more competitive”
