Kind of

Lib seems like a nice guy. Just don't like it that anyone who disagrees with his politics is automatically a racist or a nazi or whatever.

I’ve posted embarrassing things about not believing polls and sample sizes etc, I think most of us have been there.  With that being said it is pretty embarrassing for him.

you should try to explain why it isn't, because it certainly seems like it is.

Every poll had Clinton winning by a landslide. Why tf would you just accept a current bullshit poll outcome, unless it was to prove a narrative?

No way, as it’s my own embarrassment in question I get to just do whatever I want and nobody can tell if I’m actually reading or feeling any of it. You’re lucky to be one of the few posters I actually read so you get responses even if I didn’t read what you posted about. Being steve dave affords me this.

The good polls and predictive methodology gave Clinton like a 75% chance of winning, which is a pretty solid chance of losing, but math, etc.

The Soviets were the 4 time defending gold medalists and had won 5 of the previous 6 gold medals.  They were also the favorites to win the gold that year too.  So I guess if you look at the numbers a certain way you could come to the conclusion that 75% favorites is a good bet.  You are a good poker player so I know you know how percentages work.  If I have a 7/2 off suit I'm definitely going against the field when there are 2 kings an ace and a 3 on the board before the river.  I did it in Vegas 1 time and won so I know it works.

i included the clause "or should be" for the sole purpose of closing this loophole.

538's final aggregate of polls had:

clinton 48.5%
trump 44.9%

the actual vote was:

clinton 48.2%
trump 46.1%

off by 0.3% for clinton and 1.2% for trump.



538's preferred predictive model, which is not the same thing as a poll, gave clinton a 71.4% chance of winning

8mans stats disagree with whatever you just pulled out, but this is maybe why leftist news is bad. They pretty much declared her a winner before the voting.

i don't think he looked it up before posting.  75% is pretty close to 71.4%, to be posting from memory.  it's also possible he was talking about a different aggregate poll.


the narrative in the media was pretty misleading.  it often is with polls.

Sys, you seem more involved with politics these days than I’m use to. Serious question? What tilt the needle vs Trump being Trump? He’s definitely more covered by the media vs previous presidents.

Just an honest question, I’m obviously not as diverse as many down here, but I will play a hypocrisy card when needed. Which you guys also tried to abolish with the Republican Party in control.

it's also easy to mix things up, as i just did.  model, not poll.
