Nate Silver was not the most accurate Pundit

Josh Putnan was..... Slate has a bullseye graph on how the pundits scored... Nate came in 2nd.


Its an active graph so I can't post it.


Unskewed polls is on it too.

1. Weee Coulter predicted beter than Rove!

 

How embarrassing is that?

Just to much to laugh at there.

5. I'm so glad the NYTs hired him so he got

out on the airwaves and net.

I didn't follow Putnan at all.


Anyway its an interesting graph.

3. Nate Silver's blue/red map on the right side of his page - he got all the states the correct colors

In my opinion Nate got it 100% right

7. Does this include Florida?

Regardless, how do Nate Silver's detractors think they appear by trying so desperately to disparage him for being #2 rather than 100% perfect? He was accurate as hell, even if not perfect.

Really? How?

8. He's not a pundit. He's a statistician. Big difference. He doesn't opine. He does numbers & lets

the numbers speak for themselves.

9. Exactly

Lumping he and Sam Wang in the same category as Dick Morris or Karl Rove is just idiotic.
