Although that may be true. Nate Silver is using a sofisticated scientific algorithm. His version of the algorithm work is based on most of the predicting and data mining algoritm's that are used in business, military and goverrnment.

They have made America a safer place, businesses find new business and help the government predict and respond to natural disasters.

Needless to say they are quite complex. I've worked with one that was over a million lines of code that all it did was predict peak performance of a Server.

In any complex data from such complicated algorithem's the data can be manipulated to justify a viewpoint. This is not the case in Nate Silver's data.
