But I beat Rove too.
I’m calling Florida for Obama. The state will have to have a recount but I don’t think it matter; Obama wins the state. That makes Silver 51 out of 51 races correct. Rove came in at 45 of 51. Which makes it sound closer than it was. The two differed on only 6 races and Silver won all 6 of them.
I, however, got 3 of them right; I lost Virginia, Florida and Colorado. I feel pretty good, I was only VERY wrong on Colorado. Florida and Virginia were very close. I did pick the Badger State to flip thinking that Walker would save the day, so I get that one wrong.
Clearly we are going to have to watch 538 going forward.
