Great job on your analysis this election season Ironman.

You were spot from the beginning and did a great job interpreting polling results and finding relevant information regarding the election. If you are ever in the Atlanta area, I'll buy you a few beers. You should create fivethirtynine.com and be the conservative version of Nate.

Now...

Fuck you Nate Silver. You were wrong. Really wrong. Go fuck yourself. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! I hope you blog dies now that you've lost all credibility.

3. Silver gave Trump a 30% chance of winning the electoral college. That is not too far off from even chances - it's two coin tosses out of 10 away from 50/50.

Omfg!

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Nate Silver's biggest supporter.

Not being retarded hardly makes me a Nate supporter. You havent challenged anything I've said with anything but emotional nonsense.

You don't even comprehend what I said.

It's also true that someone can make the most accurate possible assessments of probability, and guess what ? One third of the time they assess that something has a one in three chance of happening, it happens.

I'm not sure what's so difficult for you guys to understand about this. What ? You think with the state polls Nate he had access to, the same ones everyone else had access to, he should have been able to say that Trump was the favorite ?

Nate had Trump winning most of the primaries. His model gave Trump a better chance than many other analysts. He talked about the large numbers of undecideds and Hillary's electoral college problems. That's why he gave TRump such a high chance.

His credibility is in tact.If he were a pollster, then you might have a point.

Idiocracy is here folks.

Marcus, he was wrong. His models failed him. He went on his own bias and lost big (3 times). I'm sorry you butthurt liberals can't see through the fact that your "prince nate" isn't all he's cracked up to be.

joshuatrio says

Wow.... getting desperate eh? This WAS about guessing right. Otherwise, Nate wouldn't be in business in the first place.

I agree, started backpedaling near the end, but it was too late. Isn't Nate's claim to fame predicting every state for Obama? If so, he came no where close for this one. Hell, my prediction was closer than his was...

Let's see... he missed, Michigan, Wisconsin, Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania

I missed... Wisconsin. Holy shit! I should start a blog now.

“Nate was arrogant. His numbers were all over the place. The title of ‘guru’ is now gone,” The Hill media reporter Joe Concha told TheWrap. He said Silver’s career will survive, but “never again will he be held in any revered regard.”

I'm sorry man, he was wrong on Trump. Quit being so whiny and accept it. He gave Clinton over 70% chance of winning and Trump walked away with over 300 electoral votes.

So then the bookies missed that the polls were rigged too? I mean if you can't trust the bookies who can you trust?

You really don't understand how markets work, in the least.

Bookies book wagers

Oddsmakers set opening lines

Punters move the market price

Bookies profit from vigorish

What bookies want is 50/50 split

Allow me to illustrate

Book offers

Who will win the 2016 presidential election?

Hillary -300
Trump +250

Now imagine they book $1 million on each side, and Hillary loses

Book banks $3 million from the hillary losses, and pays out $2,5 million to winning trump bets

They profit $500k

First off, I never held Nate in "guru" regard. But I think he factors in more details than anyone else.

For most of the 5 days prior to the vote, he had CLinton in the 64 to 66% range. I guess he ticked it up on Tuesdays morning.

But what you apparently will never understand is that given all of the information, that may have been a perfect analysis. You haven't said the slightest thing to indicate you even understand why this is true.

EVENTS WITH A 30 to 36% CHANCE OF HAPPENING , CAN HAPPEN !!"

THink of it this way, if there are infinite parallel universes, and NAte's analysis was perfect, and all the universes split of from being identical on Tuesday, then in about two thirds of the universes, HIllary won, and in the other third Trump won.

I was just trying to help you understand what probability means, but I know my multiverse example isn't going to help you, becasue obviously what's going to happen is baked in Tuesday morning.

There were things that can't be known, at least not from existing polls.

I think the problem is you never got what Nate does.

I never thought of Nate as a guru. And I always took his numbers as reasonable assessments of probability. This is why I was disappointed, but not shocked that Trump won. I know what a 35% chance of of an event happening means.

I merely provided a post with some analysis. There was no whine there. If you want to hold up a straw man to argue against, be my guest. I agree that guru status is gone to the extent that it was ever there. I already explained why he got lucky in 2012. I guess it's not surprising that the same people who would attribute guru status in 2012 are let down. Maybe they'll apply the same failed logic and anoint guru status to someone else this year.

Those events happen whenever someone makes a 3 point shot. Most people just don't grok statistics and they can't learn to see past their incorrect intuition. That's why so many people say statistics lie or you can make statistics say whatever you want.

OH, I just realized this is lying TPB (or someone just like him). You don't even follow 538, and never did. You hated him becasue he was saying your guy was unlikely to win. Again, for the entire 5 days before the election he had Trump at 34 to 36%.

were giving Clinton a 4% to 8% lead based on that false reporting.

The rolling average and Nate's prediction based on the polls had her winning by 3.5%. She won by 0.2%. So, they were off by 3.3%. If they were oversampling by 5-14%, you'd expect them to be off by 2-11% if you think that there are really just 3% more dems than republicans. This is why I tried to get you to make a prediction on the popular vote before the election based on your argument. I gave a predicted popular vote and a range of likely results, and explained why. You did not provide a popular vote prediction and you did not provide a range. So now, you just have hand waiving.

I posted my predicted chart of the states with my EC prediction in Thunder's thread, it's there too, go look at it. YOU never did that.

I never did it, because predicting state by state is a fools game, as I said beforehand. It's just too random. I asked you to predict the popular vote to see if you actually believed the argument you were making, and you wouldn't do it.

Ironman says

I was talking about ALL the polls, not just Nate's.

Nate doesn't have any polls. If the average of all polls oversampled by 9.5% (average of 5 and 14%), and there are only 3% more dems than republicans, then you would predict that the average of polls would be off by 6.5%. They were off by 3%, and it was for other reasons. The RCP rolling average Hillary advantage was 3.2% (Nate had 3.5%) and her actual advantage was 0.2% (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_clinton-5491.html)

Nice try spinning it back to popular vote

Your point was about the popular vote being wrong, and that's all that's somewhat predictable so that's what I focused on before and after the election.

Look at the chart in the WaPo article. This result was within the expected range for anyone who was willing to look at the accuracy of polls over the years.

Predictable by what?? Your WaPo link says 1.7% (if you believe that). They missed Clinton by more than that and they certainly missed Trump by HUGE margin.

Go read the text. The 1.7 value is the 'candidate error,' which is defined as 1/2 of the difference between polled value and election value. If you prefer the raw difference, just multiply the y axis by 2. The data came from the National Council on Public Polls. Do you have reason to have an issue with them too?

Of course you can get a bigger error by averaging over a month. A month ago, Trump polled terribly, because his debate performance was fresh on everybody's mind. The last week or two before the election, he polled much better, b/c Comey reminded everybody about the emails and Trump managed to stay on message.

Are you going to whine on and on about Comey stealing the election from Hillary. You do know that MANY people vote early and when you're within the last two weeks, the majority of people have already made up their minds. There's very few undecided in the last weeks.

The point was not that Comey stole the election. It's that a 30 day average is not representative of what was happening during the week of the election. Hillary's lead was 5-6 points in the first two to three weeks, and 2-3 during the last week. Maybe it was Comey, maybe it was Trump, maybe it was the wind. But, a 30 day average is pointless when things change a lot during that period. You can clearly see this by going to the RealClearPolitics results. Stop pretending to be ignorant just because it favors your argument.

Are you going to recognize your mistake regarding 1.7 versus 3.4 or are you going to ignore that? History clearly shows that polls being off by 2-3 points is completely expected, and is definitely not proof of shenanigans by pollsters. Take your tinfoil hat off.

Seth, Obama - Why dont you to form a business making something that is tangible and selling it. The rest of Americas had to do this to build our bridges, roads, plane, trains, technology. This building of things then gave people income to watch said Seth and TV, and also to elect Obama president.
