Unskewed Polls Founder Dean Chambers Takes Stock of Obama's Win
Dean Chambers, creator of UnskewedPolls.com and titular leader of the movement that insisted the polls had to, just had to be wrong, had a rough night on Tuesday. Not only did his projection of a Romney win prove incorrect, but he was forced to concede defeat to Nate Silver, a man whom he'd dissed as "thin and effeminate" and a "poster child for the New Castrati." We called a humbled Chambers the day after the election to discuss his poll-adjusting methodology and the future of unskewing.
