The fake impeachment debacle only made President Trump's approval ratings to skyrocket.

Obama was an upfront centrist once he was in office, not during the campaign.

I would buy a 538 coffee mug that was cute. Like: "One Poll is Not News" or "I Can't Tell the Signal from the Noise until I've had my coffee."

None of these people look like they're supposed to look according to how I pictured them in my head while listening to the podcast. This kind of cognitive dissonance is very uncomfortable. So guys, please contact me for notes to give to your plastic surgeon.

33:22 Claire get's so defensive whenever someone brings up even a small fault about Warren, it's almost expected every podcast at this point

The only person here who gets defensive is me when you talk smack about Claire 😂

That's a pretty extraordinary thing to glean from that time-stamp. She didn't get remotely defensive.

The video edition of the podcast could pepper the screen with charts and data. You know, make it worthwhile to switch from the audio version of the podcast. It is 2019 and video editing software has been around for decades...

You can also pepper the screen of podcast player software with charts and data and I would like that very much!

So why did they name this podcast after the electoral college? Mean something to you?

Nik Blackwell I understand what you’re trying to say, but accuracy here isn’t just measured by whether their top line prediction “came true”, this is an incorrect way to see a 75% chance. They also analyzed individual states, districts, and precincts to come up with their analysis, and most of their predicted results were very close to the final vote count. For example, some of the swing states were only won by Trump by less than 1%, which was within the margin of error. This is why there was a 25% chance of Trump winning. 25%, or 1 in 4, is a lot.

@paradoxmo I think it's misleading to call it one of the most accurate. Better to say one of the least inaccurate. Pedantic, I know.

@paradoxmo thank you for clarifying brother

henry navarro sorry, maybe I wasn’t so clear. Those numbers I cited were not margins, they were calculated probabilities of the outcome, so what they said was that there was a 3 in 4 chance that Hillary would win based on their analysis. Trump winning was for them a very real possibility, and they never said that Hillary would definitively win, unlike many other news outlets which seemed to take it as a given. FiveThirtyEight was actually criticized by other news organizations for giving Hillary what was thought to be too low of a chance of winning. But their analysis turned out to be one of the most accurate in 2016.

I've listened to the podcast for so long that now seeing your faces is a strange cognitive dissonance. Can't wait for the field to winnow!

Haha, not only do I feel the exact same way but also is "cognitive dissonance" the exact word I chose. Funny :D

Tubby Shamwow If the democrats are blind enough to nominate Biden over Sanders then yes I want them to get what they deserve. America is thirsty for real change which is why Trump won to begin with. Going back to the pre 2016 milquetoast establishment heavy surface level politics would be a nightmare. Boo to the DNC, if they’re not with us then they deserve 4 more years of a Bafoon like Trump to teach them the lesson they failed to learn in 2016.

are you willing to go so far as to not vote for him, or even vote for trump in 2020, if biden were to win the democratic presidential nomination?
