Your only prediction is for the final popular vote. You predicted a difference of 6.72% while he predicted 6.1%. The actual total was 6.1%. In addition he picked 49 of 50 states missing only on Indiana which was won by less than 1%. He did correctly pick Missouri, which was won by only 1.3% and North Carolina was by .6%. He even picked a split of Nebraska correctly.

Your program did an admirable job, but it was not as accurate nor detailed as the prediction of 538.

What the Raiders fan has said is true, our customs are different. What Al Davis has said is unimportant, and we do not hear his words.
