Nate Silver explains the Election on Colbert: Trump is losing bigly

Colbert's live show after the Las Vegas Debate/Trumpster Fire featured the man who we all turn to when we want the most accurate polling compilation:FiveThirtyEight.com's Nate Silver. (Still laughing at one of the comments on the video clip that named Nate, 'international sex machine'.)
Stephen reminded Silver that he only once got it wrong: during the Republican Primary process where he did NOT predict the victory of Herr Drumpenf├╝hrer.
COLBERT: Why did you get him wrong?
SILVER: We had silly ideas and didn't look at the polls...the problem is, he has 38% of the vote and Clinton has 45% of the votes. There are some undecideds left. Don't think he did a good job of persuading them tonight.
Colbert, who is also baffled that there still are undecideds left, asked who these people are? He joked,
I don't think they need more information, they need more medication!
Silver gave Colbert some numbers, and none of them look good for Trump. The Republican nominee is having a problem getting Republican votes in Red states, folks. That's the bottom line.
I think at this point, medicating the undecideds and taking a really deep breath is the only option remaining. Deep breath. Deep breath. Only Twenty. More. Days!
