Nate Silver, who correctly predicted the 2012 presidential election outcome in all 50 states, said that the Republicans have a 60 percent chance of taking over the U.S. Senate in the November election.
Silver has gone from Dem darling to taking heat from the DCCC and other Democrats:

If Democrats try hard enough they can will away Nate Silver’s predictions. Just like Republicans did in 2012.

We’ll have to wait until November to see if Silver is correct again.
I see we've all agreed to forget that Rs and cons — and even some neutral reporters — mocked Nate Silver for months in 2012
