About all those election predictions…

Here is something to remember about all those election predictions you are hearing these days. Some pundits have a better record than others.

Buzzfeed has an interesting list of five prominent prognosticators on the Right who were way off base in their predictions in the last presidential race, beginning with Rush Limbaugh.

    In my opinion, many of the pundents will be surprised by results. The level of disgust that this nation has for the incompetance and failure of Obama , which we will see in the election results is overwhelming.

    President Obama views are in line with the vast majority of Americans. You, Frank, underestimate the level of disgust we have for your inane and incompetent comments, while vastly over estimating their intrinsic value. Nate Silver gives the President a 73% chance of re-election, Robme, not so much. When the election is over the right wing pluto-prick will become an anecdote in the dust bin of history.

    David,
    I have no idea who Nate Silver is (don’t care either) but I do see that you are facing a huge disappointment.

    Look up Silver, he’s a statistician, you can type, you can google and repeat blather from wattsupwiththat. What do you base that on Frank, Robme’s numbers dropping, the fact that he’s losing in most of the swing states, or the idiot pundits on Faux trying to deny the obvious?
