The Geeks Were Right

So what did I learn from the election day results? Trust the geeks and nerds.

Depending on how Florida turns out I got 48 or 49 states right (missing Virginia). Nate Silver is getting a whole lot of publicity and did a great job with his predictions but other stats people should get credit. I have been reading Josh Putnam’s blog and he had everything right (assuming Florida goes for Obama). So when you talk about statistical predictions by all means talk about Silver (he’s great and I read his blog all the time) but also read some lesser known but equally awesome people.
