Nate Silver, best political forecaster in the business, has his first model available.  As you can see from the chart here, the race is still very fluid as three candidates have at least a 10% chance of winning and the range of possible outcomes for each candidate (the 95% confidence interval for stat geeks) is pretty wide.
