The search engine continues its track record of astonishingly accurate predictions.

"Now that the dust has settled from the elections, Bing Predict has won out again with a 95% accuracy rate in calling the House, Senate, and Governor's races. It got 34 out of 35 Senate races correct, 419 out of 435 House seats correct, and 33 out of 36 Governor's races correct. That's a better prediction rate than even Nate Silver’s lauded FiveThirtyEight blog."
