Quite frankly, Nate Silver is the ONLY poll analyst I trust. He called 50 of 51 States/DC in 2008. He was ded on with the GOP surge in 2010. Putting emotions and politics aside and just looking at the results of analysis, he is, hands down, the best.

He called 52 seats for the Republicans in 2010. I don't see that as some amazing feat compared to other election prognosticators.

Patrick Ishmael at HotAir was closer

Silver’s not bad, but that was a stupid article he wrote dismissing the Mitchell polls simply because it’s not a national poll. Mitchell and EPIC/MRA are two longtime used polls here in Michigan. Mitchell usually gets it close.
