Nate Silver Gives Chris Christie’s Odds to Get GOP Nomination

Nate Silver Gives Chris Christie’s Odds to Get GOP Nomination
BY BOB HOLT

Nate Silver has a pretty good record when it comes to predicting the outcome of political elections.

The editor of the website FiveThirtyEight has given a few numbers on the 2016 Presidential race- and he doesn’t like Chris Christie’s chances.

According to NJ.com, Silver gives Christie only a 5 percent chance of winning the Republican nomination for the presidency in 2016. "I think Chris Christie's chances are vastly overrated,” Silver said. “In part because he has a lot of issues where he deviates from the Republican base and in part because he's not a guy who's seen as a team player."

Silver lists former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker as Republican frontrunners for 2016.

His ability to analyze elections led Silver to predict the results of the presidential election correctly in all 50 states in 2012, The Atlantic reported. New Jersey native Jon Stewart called him “the lord and God of the algorithm.”
