Via JMG: HomoQuotable - Nate Silver
"The polls can certainly affect elections at times. I hope people don’t
take the forecasts too seriously. You’d rather have an experiment where
you record it off from the actual voters, in a sense, but we’ll see. If
it gets really weird in 2014, in 2016, then maybe I’ll stop doing it. I
don’t want to influence the democratic process in a negative way. I’m
[hoping to make] people more informed, I don’t want to affect their
motive because they trust the forecasters." - Nate Silver, speaking to students at Washington University.
