My goodness I almost forgot to update the woeful status of our unskewing guru, Dean Chambers. His site, Unskewedpolls.com, is, sadly, undisturbed from that pre-election elation of Mitt by 5.4 percent in the popular vote, 275 EV, hence I Googled the dear man and found a Business Insider interview.
Mr. Chambers is chastened. "Nate Silver was right, and I was wrong," he said. But blame-seeking is no lonely hunter. "[Scott Rasmussen] has lost a lot of credibility, as far as I'm concerned," added Chambers. "He did a lot of surveys. A lot of those surveys were wrong."
Yes, Dean, they were. But look at the bright side. You managed to make them even wronger, and that took a very "special" kind of genius.
Alas, we won't have Dean Chambers to kick around anymore. He says he's hanging up his ... whatever. Still, he leaves us not with no smile upon our face: "I think it was much more in the Democratic direction than most people predicted," Chambers told BI, apparently in all seriousness.
Like I said, "special."
