re: Marist, AP General election polls out. Clinton with huge lead - Hawkeye95
[quote]I think he's ahead in CO...that would mean he's at 274 with Maine tied [/quote] there is limited evidence of that though. the polls mostly show a clinton lead, and the polls that do show him leading (emerson/50 state polls) have some issues. emerson doesn't call landlines. And those 50 s...

re: The best critique I have read of 538 - Hawkeye95
[quote]I've watched 583 for a while now, and find it to be pretty objective. RCP, 538 - those tend to be the sources I read every day. [/quote] I do like RCP has its easy to navigate but the fact that they post NY Post articles makes me believe they are completely not objective. its a step above n...

re: If Trump wins, will you be more excited about him winning - Hawkeye95
[quote]Good lord, talk about living in a bubble. [/quote] well I probably know more, they just don't talk about it with me. I suspect my wife's family is voting for trump, but I was asked very nicely to never bring it up with them. But yes, I live in a bubble. I live in a large liberal city ...

re: If Trump wins, will you be more excited about him winning - Hawkeye95
[quote]From whom? [/quote] trump supporters. I know of only one trump supporter IRL, and he is my boss so I can't harass him when trump loses. And he doesn't really care that much. I do not really want clinton to be president though, but we are short of other viable options. I will say...

[quote]How many of these officer involved shootings of black men do you think are racially motivated? [/quote] well rintin said its ok for cops to be suspicious and scared of black people, which was the basis for my comment. I have no idea what proportion of OIS have a racial component. I would...

re: Why don't they make a series of Star Wars? - Hawkeye95
I think it could be done pretty easily. There are plenty of things in the star wars universe that don't involve elaborate battles. You could do americans style show about an empire agent infilrating the rebels or vice versa. ...

re: The best critique I have read of 538 - Hawkeye95
[quote]Sure, but very few "experts" have any sort of objective view. And a biased "expert" is too often more valued than an unbiased "expert." [/quote] there is plenty of room for subjective input on a topic too. But I tend to agree people who don't have a horse in the race are usually marginalize...

re: The best critique I have read of 538 - Hawkeye95
[quote]"Experts" who focus on subjectivity are not really experts at all. As the poster child for this phenomenon, his self-serving comments highlight why 538 is a far superior resource; he's threatened by the objectivity, something that once made him credible.[/quote] i agree completely. And if y...

re: Marist, AP General election polls out. Clinton with huge lead - Hawkeye95
