Nate Silver, Rock Star

Nate Silver predicted an Obama victory. He was ridiculed by pundits. Nate is correct and accurate enough to also predict the percentage difference of the two candidates. In 2008 he also gave his predictions and he was right 49 out of the 50 states in the union. This time he’s 50/50.

He embarassed the pundits and made them look like old wizards looking at crystal balls. Today mathematics triumph over punditry.
