TED: Nate Silver: Does Racism Affect How You Vote?

"In the 2008 election season's closing weeks, throngs of wonks and laypeople alike were glued to FiveThirtyEight.com, a habitforming political blog. Red and blue bar charts crowded the scrollbars as the pulse of exit polls crept along the site's latest projections. It seemed almost miraculous: In a year of acute turns of favor, the site's owner and mouthpiece, Nate Silver (who blogged anonymously as "Poblano" until outing himself on May 30, 2008, as a baseball numberhead), managed to predict the winners of every U.S. Senate contest -- and the general Presidential election."

 

Tips for Success

  • When you find a good source (book, article, web page), record the title, author, and other bibliographic info (journal title, web address, etc.).

  • Take notes from your sources.
  • As you read, mark the parts you might like to quote in your paper.
  • Keep organized. Keep a binder with copies of articles, your notes, and drafts of your outline.
