USA Today says Nate Silver predicted obama to be the "over whelming" favorite for reelection.obama won with 51% of the total national vote.Is that "overwhelming"?No matter,USA Today still calls Nate Silver some kind of statistical genius.He might be a stat genius but its not because of his election predictions.
