If you’re like me and scrambling for more action on the election before results start coming in … (Pauly’s not returning my emails/phone calls right now; he gets this way with friends on meth binges, too) … check out this site, which takes a sports online-poker-geek’s look at handicapping political races and making electoral projections. (via Thrillist Chicago)

Though it might be hard to get action on the presidential election this late in the game, there are still plenty of Senate races in play … and 538 breaks those down, too.

    Ooh, you are right … good stuff at

    I like the way 538 broke it all down to come up with their numbers. the chart above makes me think of the NioNio diagrams (which I never really understood, but still …)

    Also, Nate Silver, the guy behind 538, is also a huge sports geek (he’s part of Baseball Prospectus, a huge baseball stat geek type of site).
