One Prominent Analyst's Post-Election MEA CULPA

...is Larry Sabato's in THE CRYSTAL BALL, appropriately entitled, MEA CULPA, MEA CULPA, MEA MAXIMA CULPA.

An excerpt:

Well, what can we say -- we blew it.
We thought the signs pointed to Hillary Clinton winning the White House. We thought that even if she lost Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio, her Midwestern “firewall” of states that not only had voted for Barack Obama twice, but hadn’t voted for a Republican since the 1980s, would hold for her. It didn’t -- Trump blew a hole in what we dubbed “Fortress Obama.” Remarkably, this all happened while Clinton was winning Virginia by a larger margin than Obama did in 2012 and almost certainly winning the national popular vote.
