    I did not like Biden because of him but the state odds. If you bet Trump yes you probably eek out a win but could of gone like 12-2 betting him in every close state and not even have to worry about who wins Michigan.

    True. The only reasons Nate Silver got his Obama predictions right is because he's a liberal himself and that's why he got Clinton 2016 wrong. Biden might still win.

    I think the MAC conference football starting tomorrow may of been the biggest factor in swinging the election, sneaky timing.

    The mainstream news continues to put him up on a throne. They kiss his ass, hype him up. He is an all-time moron, and his "538" brand is now completely ruined

    He actually tweeted Biden was 85% when he was still a dog live after getting the 1 vote in Nebraska. His NBA stuff is kinda a joke sometimes because does not factor injuries barely.

    ‘F--k you, we did a good job’: Polling guru Nate Silver defends election predictions amid backlash



    At least he never claimed to have a silver tongue.

    Polling guru Nate Silver, founder and editor-in-chief of the FiveThirtyEight website, didn’t mince words responding to critics who are accusing him of misleading voters with election predictions that seemed much more favorable to Joe Biden.

    “If they’re coming after FiveThirtyEight, then the answer is f--k you, we did a good job," he told Galen Druke, host of the website’s Politics Podcast.

    As did many polls leading up to the election, the outlet’s most recent predictions showed the Democratic nominee with a sizeable lead over Trump. But the race turned out to be much tighter than many people expected, with the president outperforming Biden in several states.

    He did a hell of a lot better than the people on this forum that bet Trump to get re-elected...

    He's no better or worse than any other pollster. Trump creates a unique situation, due to the hidden vote, that pollsters simply can't account for. When a respondent says Biden, you have to take their word for it; you can't just assume they're lying.

    Silver had Biden 70% to win FL. Biden in Ohio by 17. Guy is a dumbfukk that can’t sell his picks or piss without it running down his leg. He’s an uglier version of lang, and just as big a loser
