On Monday evening, Piers Morgan sat down with author and statistician Nate Silver to talk about the latest poll numbers.
"Voters memories will fade some," said Silver about the continuous political news cycle affecting public opinion. "Obama did get one good piece of news where, with the unemployment number falling below 8 percent, we now think that the economy's good enough where he's probably a narrow favorite on that basis."
Silver also referenced two very divergent polls released on Monday to illustrate the large difference between the data and results pulled from reputable and "very good polls". Silver noted that what he tries to do is "look at what all the polls say" and not not fall into, in Silver's words, a "tendency now in our culture to just get rid of data we don't like."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Silver explains how "Barack Obama went from being a huge favorite at 1pm to a huge underdog at 4pm" on Monday.
