Nate Silver, founder and chief blogger at fivethirtyeight is an amazing political analyst who appears to have the ability to predict election outcomes almost perfectly. Despite the praise being heaped upon him by so many people who, like me, spent hours and hours reading his posts and studying his plots, I have to tell you I'm shocked at just how wrong his probabilities seemingly turned out to have been in the end.
