The CBS Sunday Morning Profile Of Nate Silver: All The More Fantastic Today


I missed CBS Sunday Morning this weekend (the horror!) and so I missed the profile that they aired about Nate Silver.

Given that Obama won last night, and that Silver's statistical models were pretty much on the money, the segment is even more amazing to watch now.

Note Joe Scarborough's boneheaded remarks at 2:15. Also: the 80s-era footage of CBS pollsters. They certainly know their target demographic.

Math guys are totally having a moment.
