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.
You don't know that.
