    I mean in the media, not here. We have about a 100 rightwinger tie for worst prediction here.

    I nominate Karl Rove. Anyone worse you can think of?

    Unskewed.com, followed by Dick Morris. Rove is a distant third to those clowns.

    barone was pretty bad, which surprised me. Gallup was closest with obama at 1%?

    I think every media outlet got it majorly wrong. I don't think anyone predicted that this election would be won so easily.

    Those three were the worst, but the whole "liberal media" was pretty bad. CNN spent great effort contorting itself into proclaiming the solid Obama lead was actually a tie. The whole damn media was like that.

    Nate Silver did. I wouldn't have been so cocky if I didn't believe in that dude's numbers.

    Romney was facing less than 10% chances.
