FiveThirtyEight.com is a website put together by Nate Silver and Sean Quinn. Generally speaking, Nate Silver is a baseball statistician who has put his analytical skills to work on the upcoming presidential election. As with his baseball efforts, Nate Silver is primarily interested in being able to predict the outcome of the race. There are poll trackers, electoral vote distributions, and of course, state-by-state projections.
