Engineers love data. And graphs. We love graphs, too. Toss in some statistics and some simulations and we’re as happy as can be!
A friend recommended a site that collects all of these together to try and help track polling data for the Presidential election as well as state races.
The site is: http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/
The name comes from the number of available electoral votes.
The owner of the site, Nate Silver, is “a writer, analyst and partner at a sports media company called Baseball Prospectus.”
It’s a great site for data wonks, so if you need to stare at some polling data in these last couple weeks, it’s a great place to check out.
