Notes: FiveThirtyEight, sometimes referred to as 538, is a website that focuses on opinion poll analysis, politics, economics, and sports blogging. The website, which takes its name from the number of electors in the United States electoral college, was founded on March 7, 2008, as a polling aggregation website with a blog created by analyst Nate Silver. FiveThirtyEight typically relies on its methodology and not opinion for its reports, however they do publish new stories that have a slight left-center bias in coverage.
