Grading and Shaming the Pundits After Election Day

Over the weekend, I saw a lot of chatter in the conservative blogosphere/Twitterverse about a Romney landslide.  This seems, to me, to be a bit of an exaggeration and probably even wrongheaded.  That said, here's a collection of Electoral College predictions (as of 3 PM-ish).  Figured it would be nice to have a list of media people who I can shame on Twitter on Nov. 7.

Feel free to add your own in the comments.

Nate Silver (Five Thirty Eight) - Obama, 313 to 225
InTrade - Obama, 303 to 235
Real Clear Politics - Obama, 303 to 235
Talking Points Memo - Obama, 290 to 191 (57 still a tossup)
Dick Morris (prediction here) - Romney, 325 to 213
George F. Will (prediction here) - Romney, 321 to 217
Karl Rove (prediction here) - Romney, 279 to 259
