The vindication of Nate Silver and the refutation of his critics should send a powerful message to the GOP.
You are not entitled to your own facts. Your feelings on a subject are a reflection of reality - not reality itself.
You should not tear someone down and ignore their analysis just because you don't like their results.

This should cause the GOP to reconsider other areas where they've summarily dismissed numbers that they don't like.

It should, but it won't. Because that's what rational people would do, and the party is no longer made of rational actors.

It's now a party of people pleading for someone to lie to them, lead by a group of men that are all too happy to do so as long as it lets them hold on to some amount of power for another day.

No one saw this coming? For school, my 10-year-old son researched the races. (We live in PA). He correctly called Barak Obama the winner in PA and on the electoral college. In fact, he picked 48 states correctly. (Had Romney in Colorado and Florida.) He correctly picked PA's U.S. Senate race and our local state Senatorial race.

He's TEN!, Mr. Steele

vernonFL: How many conservative pundits will lose their jobs?

Karl Rove should be fired along with Charles Krauthammer, George Will, Dick Morris, Joe Scarborough, and the entire Fox and Friends morning crew.


They aren't peddling information they are peddling the psychology of winning that conservatives need as motivation. I bet if you did a study you would find conservatives are more apt to vote if they know they are going to win than if they believe they are going to possibly lose. It jives with the psychology of fighting for policy that helps the very rich at the expense of the poor and middle class.

Esc7: 538 didn't get a single state wrong.

Not. A. Single. One.

I feel like I need to round up every single hack that wrote a hit piece on Nate Silver and force them to explain themselves.

Get ready for more pathetic excuses.


And Nate Silver only got Missouri wrong in 2008 because it was so close.

So 99 out of 100 in two cycles. One more and he achieves statistical significance!
