Solutions for Racism: How Race Affects Voting

A couple of days ago, I saw a that linked to a from a few years ago. It was a TEDTalk from someone who I (and many others) hold in high regard: . Silver runs the blog for the New York Times. He gained popularity in 2008 after he every US Senate race and just about all the electoral votes. He has a very sophisticated model that takes into account an assortment polls, along with economic data. He’s just come out with a that I can’t wait to read. If you’re interested in statistics, prediction, or forecasting, I highly recommend it!

Anyways — today, I wanted to share the TEDTalk that I just watched. As the title of this post suggests, Silver is talking about how race affected voting in the 2008 election. Somewhat surprisingly, he also raises some possible solutions to these problems. I hope you’ll take 10 minutes and watch!
