The republican party are not sowing any undue discord. But they are guilty of the same thing they're accusing dems of.

*One of many examples of why leftist/socialists should never be in the White House. Along with what Nancy did* This is why people should never allow government to rule every aspect of their life.. God how people to see what's up. John 3:16

Fact is the Democratic Party was trying to tamper the numbers of vote to reflect in their favor but even better Bernie Sanders the Old Socialist Sellout was the clear favorite.. Damn embarrassing when a loser like Socialist Bernie the Sellout that beat out the Democratic Favorite.. Seriously stop voting Socialist or Libtard just stop .. Those particular political views is not a fresh breath of air when it's actually a Pandemic Mental Health Disease which consistantly causes more Destructive behavior..

I still don't know what the Scottish teens are exactly. I know it's some kind of inside joke because it doesn't come up in Google searches but I still don't get it. Am I too dumb for this?

@AndorianBlues Thank you! I've been listening to them for awhile now and trust them more than anybody in political podcasting. I go to Pod Save when I need a liberal echo-chamber, and I go to 538 to get the real deal. I've learned so much from them, especially when to say I don't know in regards to things like online polls and betting markets.
AndorianBlues Month ago
It's a joke about betting markets. Whenever people reference betting markets as if they have any kind of ability to make predictions Nate points out that it's basically just randos on the internet that shape those markets, there's no real reason to think they know better than a statistical model. I don't know why it' Scottish teens in particular that he picks on, but I do know making online bets (including politics bets) is a lot easier in the UK.

I'm just gonna say it - I've never been a fan of Micah. He reeks of coastal elitist liberalism, and makes no attempt to hide it. Nate is the awesome lovable nerd, and the reason most of us found FiveThirtyEight initially. Clare is thoughtful and insightful. She really tries to see the other side and to understand differing viewpoints. Galen is just Galen. I really miss Harry. He left and now we're stuck with Micah. Harry is like the ex that got away. I hate you for what you did to me, but I would accept you back in an instant. Please come back Harry. Things aren't the same without you. P.S. I think Nate secretly dislikes Micah too. But is diplomatic about it because they're colleagues. But that's just my hunch.

Bernie won - this is just the DNC trying to screw him. Mayor Pete's campaign donated $34000 to Shadow Inc the voting app company that screwed Iowa...Shadow Inc is also full of Hillary Staffers...

16:31 Nate Silver USES tennis champion NAOMI OSAKA as an example of one whose legitimate moment of recognition was stolen by a losing competitor inappropriately throwing a tantrum on court, YET Mr. Silver 'feeds' that INJUSTICE by IGNORING US Open Tennis Champion Naomi Osaka's name and only mentioning the name of the poor-sport losing competitor.

*RIGGED!!!* Just tell people the truth! The DNC can't believe Bernie did so well and now they're trying to rig the results *ONCE AGAIN!*

I remember from last night about y'all talking about Iowa caucus being a complete shitshow. It brought up a quote from one of my favorite cheesy films, Kingpin, "Hey everybody there's a shit cloud coming! Run for your lives!" Can that be one of your headlines for when this is all said and done?

The chief executive, Tara Mcgowan of the company (ACRONYM) which founded and spun off the Iowa-app developer (SHADOW INC) is married to a Buttigeg advisor and huge fan of Mayor Pete. The company Acronym is a Washington based political/tech 'non profit' with unknown funding and an associated superPAC, 'Pacronym'. Acronym has significant resources as evidenced by a $75 million dollar digital advertisement campaign late last year. (readsludge.com/2019/11/06/whos-behind-dems-new-75-million-ad-campaign/) 'Prior to founding Acronym, McGowan spent four years as the digital director of liberal hybrid super PAC Priorities USA Action, which received big donations from wealthy Democratic Party donors such as Haim Saban, James Simons, Soros, Donald Sussman, and the Emerson Collective, the LLC run by Laurene Powell Jobs, in the 2016 election cycle.' On their website (now only visible in archive) Acronym writes that they have 'launched' SHADOW INC in 2019 (twitter.com/Ravagiing/status/1224608821055836161/photo/1) however Tara tweeted last night that the 'non-profit' Acronym was merely an 'investor' and had no idea of operations(twitter.com/taraemcg/status/1224591572458668032). A SUPER PAC WAS IN CHARGE OF THE APP USED IN THE IOWA CAUCUS. 'QUALITY CONTROL' TESTING WAS CONDUCTED BY A FIRM CO-FOUNDED BY ROBBIE MOOK. (twitter.com/lhfang/status/1224561674679488513) THE 'DEVELOPER' TEAM AT SHADOW INC CONSISTED OF A SMALL GROUP OF FORMER CLINTON CAMPAIGN STAFFERS INCLUDING CEO GERARD NIEMIRA, FORMER HILARY FOR AMERICA DIRECTOR AND GROUNDBASE CEO. THE EMPORER HAS NO CLOTHES.

Adam Schiff: "It is all Trumps fault. We MUST Censure him and impeach him again after he is re-elected." The rest of the country is laughing at the Democrat party because there was no glitch. They are merely rigging who they want the candidate will be and then follow thru to NOVEMBER. My money is on Bloomberg because Hillary Clinton paid off $46 million in democrat debt to be the "CHOSEN ONE" and Money talks. Sanders is so Socialist/Communist, the Democrat party will not pick him or anyone else. Warren lied about being native American and America is tired of voting for liars. Besides, Every video I see of her or photo shows her screaming at the camera. America doesn't want someone as president who has anger issues. Medicare for all? Up to $50 Trillion dollars will bankrupt America. All of the other plans costing Trillions of dollars only benefit DEMOCRATS, not Americans in general. Please everyone. I am Laughing at the House Democrats wanting to Censure the president now, knowing they will not get him removed. Since the 1960's America has never had 2 dozen people of one party running for president. Please VOTE in November. Don't feel Complacent your vote doesn't matter. That is how we lost the House. We all know the Demorats will go all out to get every Democrats to register to vote along with the dead people and illegals to vote Twice in November. Call everyone you know, REGISTER to vote and get out and Vote in November.

They are using Electronics and APPS to record results. Have they never heard of hacking..? REALLY..? They say they are concerned about election tampering. Why not eliminate the possibility by requiring a ballot. And make sure every voter is identified to make sure one person doesn't put in 10 votes. They Talk about Democracy... Yet they don't practice it.

The Number ONE thing you do NOT do with a critical software system is roll it out for a very important event UNTIL it has been checked, rechecked, tested for all possible problems, ESPECIALLY if you are going to be on TV. This is embarassing for those of us in software development...as well as Americans in general.

So, the first commentator starts off by saying it's a little "Trumpian to throw down on the process"? You immediately characterize a legitimate questioning of the incompetent handling of the Iowa democratic process as a personal "flaw" of the elected President? Wow, the Democrats are doomed. You can't even own your own eff-ups. And cannot be trusted with any election.

We're continually told how important voting is. Roll out pop culture's biggest names for the latest "Rock the Vote" campaign. And for what? For this nonsense. Politics never changes. Even after this outsider was suppose to roll through Washington and drain the swamp---nothing has changed. Now, we just have a president who embarrasses us & lowers the moral standard for human decency pretty much every day he's in office with his offensive tweets & disgusting behavior. And it wouldn't be any better with Hillary Clinton and her brand of corruption in power, either. For the first time in a very long time, I actually care about this year's election. Because of Andrew Yang. He's a different candidate, in my opinion. But, last night CNN barely mentioned his name. This whole time you never see him mentioned when they cover the polls. It's always DNC approved candidates having their ugly mugs plastered all over the news. It's the same 'ol same 'ol. Here I am the guy on the outside, the guy who usually could not give a rat's ass about politics. Dear God shoot me in the head right now than force me to waste my time listening to this contrived drivel. I'd rather sit in the waiting room at my doctor's office. Jesus... And this is what I get. This crap. This ridiculous excuse for an election. What a fucking joke.
