Election-Day Book Recommendation: The Signal and the Noise

From FNC’s Chief Data & Analytics Officer, Bob Dorsey:

I read a book this weekend I highly recommend: The Signal and the Noise. You can’t get a better topic: statistics and probability. The author, Nate Silver, runs the FiveThirtyEight blog and does analysis of all the political polling. It’s been very accurate historically. Silver talked a lot about financial markets in the book.

As of this morning, according to the DeBord Report, Nate Silver’s analysis shows Mitt Romney has “a less than 10 percent possibility of winning the election.”
