Nate Plastics website loses millions every year

He is almost never right, but gate keeps the entire polling industry

Companies that correctly predicted 2016 are blacklisted from his site or given garbage ratings

Someone is supplying him with millions to spread his disinformation..

Beat me to it. He's being paid to manufacture bullshit. Then they can use his fake polling to contest the election results.

Silver correctly called 49 states in 2008, and ever since then the left has been treating him like some kind of statistical prodigy. He was wrong many times during the 2016 election. He gave Hillary a greater than 99% chance of winning the Michigan primary, which she lost. He repeadly said that Trump would not win the Republican primary, which he did handily. Ditto the general election, where he repeatedly said that Hillary would easily beat Trump. I can't believe people still treat him like he's the ultimate authority when it comes to polls.

Getting 49 out of 50 isn't even that hard. There's about 40 and anyone can predict right anyway. So it's really the 10 that is going to be close at all anyway, And on those, if you had no information and just tossed a coin. You'd get 5/10 right on average. So that's 45 out of 50. That's any average person tossing coins is going to get 45 of 50 right. So if you give them some polling data to increase their accuracy of complete randomness of 50% another 20%, and they would get 47 out of 50 right. So Nate got 49 while any average person with access to his information can get to 47. That's nothing.

"Silver correctly called 49 states in 2008"

There were multiple ..accidental.. examples going all the way back to '96 by news outlets precipitously publishing articles on their websites waaay too early, of a collusion between mass media and 'Voter News Service', where:

the electIons' winners,
the exact percentages,
and even the number of total votes cast,

..were 'somehow' already known - the Morning of the elections - As The Polls Were Opening.

🤦‍♂️

"Correctly Predicting" the stuff wasn't the hard part, the hard part apparently was the capacity to Wait until doing so would seem actually possible.

I watched a Tim Pool yesterday where Silver derided Trafalgar's polling and Tim turned the same criticism back on him. Trafalgar is trying to correct for biases. Silver is desperately trying to make his biases the truth.

The Left: "No, no, no. Nate's polls are correct because they're different."

Normal person: "How's that?"

The Left: "A normal, inaccurate poll relies on random phone calls to Democrat districts and incorrectly weighs the polls because they believe 61% of registered voters are Democrats."

Normal person: "And Nate's polls are different, how?"

The Left: "Nate culls together polls that rely on random phone calls to Democrat districts and weigh polls with the correct amount of 62% because that's how many registered voters are Democrats."

As of yesterday, 24% 'R' ballots turned in in Philly. That's about triple POTUS's 2016 numbers in Philly. If that level of support sticks, or registered dems (I'm looking at you my fellow Americans of African ancestry) walk away in significant numbers and vote Trump, PA is in the bag.

His latest tweet about how Trump couldn’t win unless he stole the election obviously comes at the direction of his benefactors so when Trump does win they can say “See, the ‘expert’ said this was impossible and is rigged.” So they can try to say the election is illegitimate.

mathman 10 points ago +10 / -0

I've said it before. Nate Silver is a typical narcissist who claims to possess incredible secrets and never quite reveals them.

His biggest flaw that I can identify is that he holds onto obsolete data far too long, again because he is a narcissist and it makes him feel like part of some incredible drama that he understood from the beginning. Actually, the world is complex and constantly changing, and it cares very little for Nate Silver.

Seriously, if you are wondering how there can be so much high energy for Trump but can’t square the fact that the polls are predicting a crushing loss for the GEOTUS then give People’s Pundit(Rich Baris) a view. As a bonus he does a show with Robert Barnes who is on Viva Frei’s law channel. People’s Pundit is straight legit!

Hardly. He's a useful idiot. Even if Biden loses, his fake poll analysis was useful propaganda for Democrats. They'll keep him on the payroll, just like they did after 2016.

new_world_omelette 6 points ago +7 / -1 (edited)

No matter what you think of the NFL (I no longer patronize it) or my favorite team (the Patriots), the "Deflategate" fiasco can be seen as the initial 21st century 'harmless' trial balloon that the powers that be decided to test the public with: How much bullshit would the public allow them to get away with, including explaining away basic scientific principles in order to further whatever narrative they wanted to push?

Well, this dude and his outfit (538) helped push the bullshit by concluding the team must have been deflating footballs because their fumble rate was lower than the rest of the league. Never mind the Ideal Gas Law and the basic truth that any cold-weather person knows: that objects like tires and sportsballs tend to deflate in cold weather...

Today, of course, we see science and common sense tossed out of every window in much the same manner that "polling" has gone out the window. 538 is anti-science, anti-common sense, and a propaganda arm for the Controlling Interests. Nate Silver is a [literal] tool.
