    Nate Silver.....a shining example of why Math is better than clownish punditry!

    ^I personally talked a lot about Nate Silver on election day, and I felt confident that Obama would win because a REAL statistician and a man who understands polls, probabilities, and numbers was properly able to make a formula which said that Obama had a 90%+ chance of winning the election.


    Meanwhile CLOWNISH PUNDITS such as Dick Morris and Karl Rove were saying that they had a "good feeling" that Romney would win!

    Dick Morris said Romney would win in a "Landslide"!

    Pay attention GOP and Dems.....Math, Science, Stats, don't have any bias, they hold much more weight than partisan nonsense!

    Science and Math FTW!!!

    To be honest.. when Silver shows a republican will win using the same math.. democrats will try to discredit him just like republicans have for the last 5 years. People will always see what they want to see, and his math will still be around 95% right like its been thus far.

    Pretty much, yeah. With that said the last part of this post is the most important thing to take away from it.

    Well, I DID mention the Dems as well.....seeing as I'm independent I have no allegiance towards them.


    The thing is that, I saw many liberal pundits that were going by the polls, meanwhile the conservative pundits were going by their "guts" and "feelings".

    It's ridiculous!

    "Pundit" is a more made up job than "Social Media Expert"
