Nate Silver Calls Out NY Times

May the best nerd win.

Former New York Times staffer and current FiveThirtyEight editor Nate Silver is not impressed with the Times’ analysis of Scott Walker’s electoral record.

The Times Nate Cohn reported that Walker’s performance wasn’t great, but FiveThirtyEight’s Harry Enten disagreed. When referring to Republicans who say the fact that Walker is so conservative makes his wins admirable, Enten dropped this line on Cohn: “I tend to agree with this line of thinking.” Oh dammmmmmnnnn.

Cohn gave his take. Enten rebutted it with pure fire. Then Silver declared a nerd fight.
