Nate Silver went 50 for 50 last night. Did you have projections/what was your result?

Yes, I filled out a map with my projections yesterday afternoon before the polls closed.  I probably should have posted it at some point yesterday.  Oh well. 

Anyway, I didn’t do as well as Nate Silver, but my projections weren’t bad — I went 44/50 (I guess 45/51 if you count the District of Columbia).  The states that I guessed incorrectly were Colorado (won by Obama), Wisconsin (won by Obama), Indiana (won by Romney), West Virginia (won by Romney), Virginia (won by Obama), and North Carolina (won by Romney).

I’m definitely no Nate Silver, but I’m pretty happy with the accuracy of my projections.  In unrelated news, my fantasy football team is terrible but somehow keeps stumbling into wins each week out of pure luck.
