From Deadspin: Nate Silver’s Braying Idiot Detractors Show That Being Ignorant About Politics Is Like Being Ignorant About Sports

This article by David Roher is fantastic: Nate Silver’s Braying Idiot Detractors Show That Being Ignorant About Politics Is Like Being Ignorant About Sports

The article also pointed me to the Princeton Election Consortium, which is also fantastic.  They have the probability of an Obama win at 99.0% and predict an electoral college win of 315-223. Below are some of the graphs they have produced about the election, I especially like the 2012 Electoral College Map with each state’s area displayed proportional to its electoral votes.

Cheers.
