In 2007, Mr. Silver began to publish analyses related to the U.S. presidential election. The accuracy of his predictions—in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections and a range of congressional and senatorial races—won him followers, fans, and commendation.
He was named one of “The World’s 100 Most Influential People” by Time magazine, and his blog, FiveThirtyEight.com, was licensed for publication by The New York Times. Mr. Silver's book, The Signal and the Noise: Why Most Predictions Fail – But Some Don't, discusses baseball, elections, climate change, the financial crash, poker, and weather forecasting. Published in September 2012, it was named by Amazon.com as one of the best books of 2012.
At Spertus, Mr. Silver will speak about the impact of the Jewish vote in American politics and the art and science of predicting the future.
Mr. Silver’s book will be for sale at this event and he will be signing books after the program.
