Today, the Washington Post calls the presidential race a contest "as close as any in recent history." NPR reported this morning on some potential nightmare outcomes, including an electoral college tie.
Looking around at all this with a little amusement is Princeton neuro-scientist Sam Wang. His day job is studying the cerebellum, but his hobby is analyzing poll data.
Wang publishes the Princeton Election Consortium, a blog that's popular with "poll geeks" and is now getting a lot of attention from general political junkies. And he has a great track record.
In the 2008 election, his calculation missed the actual electoral vote count by...one electoral vote. Sam Wang joins us from Princeton.
