74. Nate started off in '08 on Daily Kos, about the least republican site (next to DU) on the web

I believe he was an Obama supporter. He started getting a lot of publicity after either IA or NH (not sure exactly when, but it was during the primaries). He started hitting it big later on during the general election and I remember him being featured in a few magazines.

Since having joined with the NYT, I'll agree with many that his commentary is sort of blah. He had a cool, independent website in '08, with interesting contributors. His presentation feels a little too slick and the site feels more neutered now. But I'm not certain exactly how Nate has changed his methodology since then. Maybe others more familiar with his models can chime in.

Maybe it's also the political environment. The polarization feels worse every year, and it feels worse now than even '04. Bush's extreme policies were the beginning. The Tea Party's ascent has simply made the country ungovernable.
