Truest statement of the week II

I can’t wait to hear all the political insiders who worship at the altar of Nate Silver explain how he could have been so wrong about Maryland’s gubernatorial race.
On Monday, Silver said on his FiveThirtyEight website that there was a 94 percent chance Democrat Anthony G. Brown would be Maryland’s next governor, and that Brown’s margin of victory over Republican Larry Hogan would most likely be 9.7 percentage points.
