538 is Back!

Nate Silver rode to fame in the 2008 election campaign by barely missing the electoral college results using data driven polling.  In 2012 he did even better missing just one state.  Now his 538 blog (which was owned by the NYTimes and is now owned by ESPN) is back.  Like his book, The Signal and the Noise, the blog aims to go beyond just politics.  For our purposes it also includes economics.

To give you a taste, here is an article looking at the correlation between national results (election years) and off-year elections and here is one on the Republican field for president.
