Election Predictions

Democratic Strategist runs down who did the best in predicting how the election would turn out. The highest grades were given to John Judis and Ruy Teixeira in their book The Emerging Democratic Majority, from 2002. At the time I read this book, I was a recent political science masters graduate and I really understood the statistical analysis in the book well and since then, I've really stuck with this book as one of the most important books that we should all be reading these days. Pretty much most of it still applies now, so if you haven't read it yet, you should. It explains, in advance, what happened in 2006 and 2008 and what's still coming down the road.
