Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
All throughout the campaign, Nate Silver was consistently predicting the re-election of the president. And as chicagotribune.com reported, the computer expert and writer got the election result correct. With that, Silver rose to fame and news website GreenBeanBuddy.com commented he was getting an overwhelming attention for it because he was the most-criticized among his generation of pollsters.
According to the said report, Silver predicted that the president got a 90 percent chance of winning the presidential race. Gawker.com though specified that it was actually 90.9 percent. And as it was said, he made his predictions public on The New York Times blog ThirtyFiveEight, which he maintains.
Gawker related that the young political pundit basically makes his predictions with the use of math. With his statistical model, which the site shared is a numerical election simulater, Silver utilizes past election data to make calculated assumptions.

“The re-election of Presidnt Obama was not just his victory. It was the victory of millions of people who voted for him. And among them, Nate Silver is now one of the most prominent?
So what is it that makes this Nate Silver so big these days? Well, basically, it was his “prediction” of the election results. In The New York Times blog FiveThirtyEight, which he maintains, Silver predicted a victory for the president by 90.9 percent. But apart from that, he also made a hit when his 50 of 50 states predictions turned out correct.”
News website GreenBeanBuddy.com shared that along with Silver, Drew Linzer and Sam Wang also predicted Obama's win. However, among the three of them, Nate Silver was the most-praised. And as the site commented, apart from his more detailed predictions, that's because Silver was also the most criticized before the election ended.
