Nate Silver and his uncanny election predictions

In addition to getting 50 out of 50 states right (including probably Florida), Nate Silver also got within 15 minutes of what time the election would be called and also correctly predicted that Ohio would be the call of the evening that put Obama over the top.

Skeptics may deride what he does as mere “poll crowd-sourcing” but you have to admit he does it really well. And the fact  he is able to pinpoint not only which way the states will go, but what state will bring the electoral votes past 270 is pretty amazing.
