In other news, omg I'm sick

My mainstay through this election cycle has been FiveThirtyEight.com, a site run by a couple of the statisticians from another of my favorite sites, the Baseball Prospectus. Their aim is more or less the same aim they had with BP: to cut through the nonsense and figure out which statistics truly matter. Nate Silver looks at the recent poll data, tells you which polls are junk and why, exposes his own models, and then says why he thinks the most likely outcome on election night is an Obama victory.

Also noteworthy is the series of articles they've done on the two candidates' field offices around the nation. Read them all under the "on the road" tag. Fascinating reading; highly recommended.
