  •  NPR's finance show had on the head of Gallup (3+ / 0-)

    and they grilled him about their failure in the polling. They then brought up Nate and the guy basically said, "Without pollsters like us aggregators like Nate Silver couldn't exist." As if Nate owes Gallup for his awesomeness.

    Isn't that like saying "There is no good without evil"?

    •  Polling firms need to work FOR Silver (0+ / 0-)

      The Gallup guy was right, though.  Pollsters do need to do the work, but hand it over for analysis.
