Twitchy has already posted a piece on pollster Nate Silver today, in which he repeats his theory that James Comey’s October surprise of a letter one year ago today almost certainly cost Hillary Clinton the 2016 election.
Silver isn’t only doubling-down on that theory today; he’s also confessing his unpopular opinion; namely, that who paid for the research to create the infamous Steele dossier on Donald Trump isn’t especially interesting or important.
Who funded the Steele dossier is not an especially interesting or important news story. #ConfessYourUnpopularOpinion

Also from just about a year ago, here’s a reminder that, yes, Silver has been very wrong before.
Our final forecast of the year just published! Clinton is a 71% favorite in polls-only, 72% in polls-plus. https://t.co/UxLqelkmvP pic.twitter.com/yTXPTLF5Ri

Maybe it’s just from hearing for nearly a year now about how Russian collusion “hacked” the 2016 election, but we’re very interested in who paid Christopher Steele to compile that bogus dossier.
Nah, the @DNC and others colluded with a hostile foreign gov't to get dirt on a political opponent. No big whoop. https://t.co/1qYD53b6G7

Yeah…You are right. team Hillary, the DNC and their powerful lawyers at Perkins Coie paying for the dossier is no big deal.

It actually is when the question is collusion and the sources cited in the dossier are Russians with active ties to the Kremlin. https://t.co/LbAB3ZHTtZ

What dossier said was built upon the agenda of person who purchased…It was a major story & a complete lie. Who caused that matters… https://t.co/Fi73jZmdXS

Actually it may violate campaign finance laws. People have gone to prison for that. But keep telling people it's harmless.

It's totally relevant because this dossier was the initial excuse to start the #TrumpRussia investigation. https://t.co/SdDV9S7b2d

It might be the story of the decade, Nate; if the dossier was used to justify warrants, someone swore that opposition research was accurate. https://t.co/VHJn6sKCJ6

What if the FBI chipped in a couple of million? Think that's "uninteresting"? https://t.co/HRvUseNM3x

The fact that the @DNC funded dossier shows that:
1. Mueller investigation is based on a sham.
2. Clinton campaign spread Russian intel. pic.twitter.com/EhJrjrzgAB

For being so uninteresting and so unimportant, a lot of very powerful people seem pretty eager to deny they had anything to do with it. https://t.co/QS4RsbdnxD

i'm still amazed at the mental gymnastics well known people go through to avoid considering that people from their own party might have lied https://t.co/x8ExihWldm

Liberals aren't enjoying questions over who knew about funding of Trump dossier https://t.co/duNc1K5W0U
