Why we still think Nate Silver is wrong.

The 538 group is pretty good when it comes to data. But they also, in my humble opinion, rely to much on polls and not enough on history.

We are sticking with our prediction that the Democratcs will fall just short of taking the house.

Election Prediction base on historical model

Nate Silver believes Democrats have an 85.6% chance of taking the house.

https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2018-midterm-election-forecast/house/?ex_cid=rrpromo

 

Why do we think Silver is wrong?

Because historically the economy is good and the president’s approval rating is high enough to stop the wave. But we’ve also notice that throughout history it’s  not just that the economy is good, it’s that it was bad before the chance. Or at least that is the perception.

This causes those who might normally lean left to pause before voting. They realize that things are going well, and the time when things weren’t going well is still fresh enough in their memory to be hesitant to change course.

Is Silver really wrong?

Well, just like in the election of 2016 Nate Silver understands the many of the races are in the margin of error. That means, they truly could go either way. What young Mr. Silver does not do very well is put things into historical context. We see this with data people quite often. You cannot perfectly and objectively quantify a poll or a narrative. It just doesn’t work like that. So when Silver, or any pollster or data analyst, tells you there is an 85.6% we know there is a problem.

On our Civil War prediction we currently have it at 55%. But what we mean (and have said) is that  is is somewhere between 40 and 60%. That’s the way history works. As  you really begin to study history one of the first things you learn is nothing is inevitable.

So from a purely analytical perspective, Silver looks to be right. But it’s nowhere near as precise as he indicates.

From a purely historical perspective, we stand by our prediction. The  Democrats come up just short of taking the house.

If we are wrong, we believe it will still be very close. We think the Cook report and an estimate of the Dems picking up 30 to 40 seats is highly unlikely.

One small change to our prediction.

A few polls are moving to the high end of the lean Democrat. So we do think the Democrats will likely pick up closer to 20 seats. But even if they do take the House we are confident that it will be with no more than 25 seats. And that would be a strong over perform for the Democrats.

If the Democrats pick up more than 17 seats, they are still historically over-performing.

If they pickup less than 14 seats they are under-performing and they may have a big problem going into 2020 presidential election.

After the election we will look at the results and the mood of the nation and politicians and update the civil war predictor.

    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

Being alive without the presence of answers to the problems you’ve sorted out by means of your main short post is a crucial case, as well as the ones which may have negatively affected my entire career if I hadn’t encountered your blog post. Your own skills and kindness in taking care of all the stuff was crucial. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a point like this. I’m able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for your impressive and effective guide. I won’t think twice to propose your web page to anyone who desires support about this situation.

  26. Can I simply say what a relief to find an individual who truly
    understands what they’re talking about over the internet.
    You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and
    make it important. A lot more people ought to look at this
    and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you are not more
    popular because you certainly possess the gift.

  27. We’re a bunch of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our
    community. Your website provided us with useful info to work on. You have done an impressive job and
    our entire community will be grateful to you.

  28. Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to
    check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you provide here and can’t
    wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your
    blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just
    3G .. Anyhow, excellent site!

  29. of course like your web site but you have to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of
    your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and
    I find it very bothersome to inform the reality however I will definitely come back again.

  30. I believe everything posted made a ton of sense. However, what about this?
    what if you composed a catchier title? I mean, I don’t wish to
    tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added
    a post title to possibly grab folk’s attention? I mean Why we
    still think Nate Silver is wrong. – Another Civil War
    is a little vanilla. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front
    page and see how they create news headlines to grab people
    to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers interested
    about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.

  31. I must show my passion for your kindness for men and women who must have assistance with in this issue. Your special commitment to passing the solution throughout became exceedingly valuable and have frequently enabled somebody like me to reach their endeavors. The interesting instruction indicates this much to me and extremely more to my fellow workers. Thanks a lot; from each one of us.

  32. I simply had to say thanks yet again. I do not know the things I would have made to happen in the absence of those ways contributed by you relating to such a theme. It previously was a real terrifying circumstance in my circumstances, but noticing your specialized fashion you processed the issue forced me to jump with gladness. I’m happy for your information and then believe you comprehend what a powerful job that you’re getting into educating some other people through the use of a web site. I know that you have never come across any of us.

  33. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive
    a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  34. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to
    come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to
    create your theme? Outstanding work!

  35. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be actually something which I think
    I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try
    to get the hang of it!

  36. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about,
    why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you
    could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  37. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous
    about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  38. I enjoy you because of all your labor on this website. Ellie enjoys carrying out research and it’s really obvious why. I notice all relating to the dynamic ways you offer good tricks on the blog and therefore increase participation from people about this situation so our own girl is being taught a great deal. Enjoy the remaining portion of the year. You are always conducting a fantastic job.

  39. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  40. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and
    am concerned about switching to another platform.

    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I
    can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  41. Hi there I am so grateful I found your web site, I really found you by
    mistake, while I was looking on Yahoo for something else, Regardless I am here now and would just like to say thanks a lot for a remarkable post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love

    so when I have time I will be back to read a lot more, Please
    do keep up the awesome b.

  42. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  43. I truly wanted to write down a quick remark in order to thank you for all the marvelous points you are writing here. My long internet lookup has at the end of the day been recognized with pleasant details to share with my partners. I ‘d claim that most of us site visitors actually are rather blessed to exist in a superb place with very many special individuals with valuable guidelines. I feel quite lucky to have discovered the web page and look forward to plenty of more awesome minutes reading here. Thank you once again for everything.

  44. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  45. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  47. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  48. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  52. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  57. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  73. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  74. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  75. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace.

  76. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  77. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  78. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  84. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  86. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  101. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

Ron, Mike, and Steve come from Forex trading scene and came to a summary that they wanted to make a money making spitting system that would choose winning choices based on a precise and powerful auguration model. They will wanted to “trade” in the sports niche market just like you trade on the New York Stock Exchange. Little did they already know all their work would pay off in such a grand way!

It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  170. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  171. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  172. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  173. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  175. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  177. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  185. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  191. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!
