One thing I noted in this @PostOutlook piece from this morning that deserves a little more emphasis -- when it came to the House, the forecasters pretty much nailed this election.…
Right now, it looks like Democrats are on track to pick up 35 seats.

At their Crystal Ball site, @LarrySabato and @kkondik predicted a Democratic gain of 34 seats.…
Likewise, @databyler at @weeklystandard also predicted the Democrats would wind up with 228 seats in the House, which translates to a pickup of 34 seats.…
At @CNN, @ForecasterEnten predicted a slightly lower net pickup of 32 seats for the Democrats.…
The folks at @CookPolitical were a little more sweeping, predicting a broader Democratic range of 30-40 seats gained -- which, again, proved to be pretty much right if we wind up with a gain of 35.…
And on and on.

For all the hell they caught in 2016 -- largely from people who didn't quite understand probabilities -- the forecasters acquitted themselves pretty damn well this time around.
