Reports of higher than expected GOP turn out are making this a decent sweat.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Erection Day Discussion

yeah i don't get what the backlash is based on

i mean what does he do, uses stats to predict election results and [censored]? isn't that what existing pollsters already try to do? i feel like i might be missing a rather big piece of the puzzle here or something...

Minnesota is such a joke you can register at the poll and don't even need an id. Someone can just vouch for you.

Chicago having laughable voting procedures isn't shocking tho.

its based on the media wanting to be able to sell "OBAMA AND ROMNEY ARE TIED AT 48%. ITS A DEAD HEAT" and not "obama just needs to win one of these three states that he leads by 5 points"

He is really good at it though. He uses better trend analysis to remove some bias in polling. That means he does a much better job of predicting outcomes. It also means his outputs don't match the stories pundants want to push.

Oh sweet we can talk about the election tonight. My thoughts?

Doesn't matter. President is just a spokesperson for the Illuminati.

I'm new to this whole government thing but what I gathered from the campaigns and debates is that once one is elected president you just walk into the Oval Office and start declaring laws.

US should rejoin the commonwealth.

It would be a fun retro thing.

I really hate political coverage. Every ***** is some spokesperson for their party and spin like mad.

****ing mainstream media is such a scam.

i have to admit i'm rather curious to see if he blows up if the model is as accurate (or close to) as it was 4 years ago
There is good criticisms of silver's political work out there. He really did blow the 2010 british elections.

none of the mainstream backlash is at all legitimate, and silver only was trying to project 2010 brits as an exercise iirc
