In case you’ve been wondering why you’re seeing so many ads in the Senate race between Patty Murray vs. Dino Rossi, check out the new installment of Nate Silver’s Political Calculus, posted last night on The New York Times.

Silver’s math-intensive analysis shows that Washington is more likely than any other state to decide whether the Republicans take control of the Senate. (And you wondered what math majors do for a living.)

With polls pointing to an ultra-tight outcome, the same advice goes for both Democrats and Republicans: Get the ballot in.

    Let’s hope we don’t need three recounts and numerous discoveries of previously uncounted votes to settle this one, it’s bad for people’s faith in the political process.

    Don’t hold your breath, Scott…..King County car trunks are probably pre-loaded with Murry Votes and Military Ballots are sequestered in a back room somewhere. You can be sure all the votes from illegals will be counted, tho…..Go ahead, someone prove me wrong….*evil glare*
