Nate Silver Is God!!!

Numbers do not lie!! It is all about the math STUPID!! Given a choice among the half ass pundits, partisan pollsters, main stream media and NATE SILVER, I will go with Nate all the time!! Why? Because Nate's projections, comments, and analysis are not based on emotion and bullshit, but on hard core science ( statistics ). Nate is a genius and he has a bright future. Henceforth, Nate is my go to person on all issues requiring a sound analysis devoid of emotion.

The American main stream media is a disgrace. "Oh, the race is really close! It is on a knife's edge". How is 303 and counting vs 206 electoral votes a close race? Yet, for 24 hours everyday for months, we were told that the race was really, really close. The MSM should stop pretending that they are a serious source of information, but rather, a source of entertainment.

The talk of a very close race, without any credible data to back it up was simply disingenous. I am very happy that Mr Silver has been vindicated, and all the blabbing, over paid "pundits", talking heads, partisan pollsters, fake pollsters and MSM have been humbled.
VIVA NATE SILVER!!! Hey Joe Scarborough, how about that bet with Nate?

2. Infotainment d-bags may have done Obama a favor

By not seeming too positive and not allowing people to become complacent. Every villain has their blind spots.

Of course, had the election ended up in court, the media claims would have taken credibility away from the Democrats. Similar effect if Repubs stole the election without any court challenge (the infotainment claims would have contributed to heading off a lawsuit).

5. Nate is good, but some of his analysis this election season wasn't great.

And most people predicted that Obama would win the states he did because of the polls.

Is the RCP average of swing states a God and a genius?
