quants win

After so many weeks of efforts to find holes in the polls, the pundits now need to acknowledge that the geeky guys who analyzed and aggregated the opinion surveys were right, not just close, but right on the money with their estimates.

The election also showed that the sophisticated Democratic ground game, propelled by extensive quantitative analysis, allowed them to get their people to vote in large numbers.

The Obama team knew how to win allt he states they won in 2008 and wound up winning all but two [or three if Florida ends up in Romney's column].  The future of campaigning is with the quants.
