Nate Silver, god of the political predicting, is shopping around two books. If there was one place that sad liberals could go to make yourself feel better during this eternity of an election season, it was fivethirtyeight.com. As for why I call Nate Silver a god, it’s because it’s true and factual The dude predicted the Super Tuesday delegate divvying within a dozen (out of over 1600). He accurately predicted North Carolina and Indiana primary results. He was within one percentage point of the popular vote, predicted 49 of 50 states’ results correctly and all of the resolved Senate races correctly. If Nate Silver were to write tomorrow that the world was flat, I would believe it.
Update: Nate Silver sold his two books to Penguin for $700,000.00.
