E-Poll polls the pollster

Author and blogger Nate Silver was one of the stars of the recent election cycle, cutting through media clutter with his “analysis of politics, polling, public affairs, sports, science and culture, largely through statistical means.”

But is his popularity just “inside baseball” for the media set, or does his reputation cross over to a more mainstream audience? We included Mr. Silver in our E-Score Celebrity survey to find out what America thinks.

By way of comparison, Silver’s awareness and attribute scores are similar to another noted author whose work deals with social science and the implications of research, Malcolm Gladwell.
