They may change minds, they may not; there's so much new about this one that things could change right up until the end.

That said, I don't think they will enough to keep Obama from winning, but the point still stands.
The undecideds are at like 7-8% now. Not a lot of chance there to make up ground. And Silver takes all the points in your post and incorperates them in this prediction model.

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
