he called every state correctly. he flipped his prediction for florida to a slight obama lean right before the election but everything else is pretty consistent with his analysis over the past few months or so. this wasn't a horse-race toss up coinflip whatever. sorry about your (objectively wrong) gut feelings, pundits and sycophants

CAN'T BELIEVE METOROLOGISTS USED MATH AND SCIENCE TO PREDICT THIS STORM. THEY MUST BE MAGIC WIZARDS.

Polls show Obama won, but Dick Morris did also, so it kind of cancels out.

Didn't he get like 2 senate races wrong, and actually ended up being democrat winners when he picked republicans to win? that means that Silver officially has a republican bias hahaha

He's a Romney voter. He's just too good at his job to lie for either side

When you're good, you're good. No disputing the results.

Also, his calculation of the popular vote. Obama 50.8 to Mitt 48.3.

The real count is 50.3 to 48.2 with a few votes still outstanding.

Dude is amazing and I have been pimping him since before it was popular (for democrats) to pimp him
