Was Nate Silver a righty when the Republican's pick up of 63 seats in the 2010 House race was within the margin of error of his prediction?
Was Nate Silver a righty when he correctly picked 36 of the 37 gubernatorial races, missing only on the Illinois race where he picked the Republican when the Democrat actually won (by 0.5%).
Maybe Nate Silver is just very good at this because he uses the most statistically valid prediction methods.
Maybe so. How far out did he make those predictions?
