The political genius Barack Obama credited with "nailing" the 2012 presidential election has left the New York Times for sports giant ESPN. But why did FiveThirtyEight's Nate Silver go? Ask him yourself, right now!
Last week, Nate Silver, the statistician who became famous (and stupidly infamous) for his political forecasting, bolted The New York Times for ESPN. Curious how he'll fit in at a company dedicated to producing more noise than signal? Wondering how it felt getting tossed under the bus somewhere along Eighth Avenue? Nate's in the discussion below, awaiting your questions.
Update (4:45 p.m.): He's done. Everyone say thank you to Nate.
