re: Patrick Murray Story (Monmouth) is picking up local steam - emmanuellewis
I would love to hear the voicemails being left of people explaining why the stats are 'wrong.' My bet is f-bombs outnumber any references to his math, stats, or weighting by at least 10 to 1....

re: Monmouth Pollster Patrick Murray Busted Fixing Poll Data, then Lying about it. - emmanuellewis
I've typed this before but it amazes me that this site is going down the exact same road as 2012. The vast majority of posters in this thread do not understand statistics or how weighting works but that does not stop them from posting like they are experts. I look forward to seeing the 'bias' in thi...

re: Florida is not a battle ground state...Trump wins it easily. - emmanuellewis
And in 2012 there were posts littering this board about how enthusiasm for Obama in 2008 was an anomaly and now that people had voted for a black president once, there would not be the same level a second time (this was typically combined with "especially after 4 years of seeing" x, y, z). Now the s...

re: trump leads 5+ in Pennsylvania - emmanuellewis
[quote]Results are estimated to be accurate within 7.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.[/quote] That makes no sense (19 times out of 20). Also, since there is such a concern on the website over poll skewing, I'm surprised no one has pointed out that no one under the age of 30 was contacted ...

re: NV poll: Clinton +2 (Suffolk) - emmanuellewis
It really is incredible that the "polls are wrong" is going to happen on this board again this cycle. The twist this year will be that trump won't concede so many of his followers will parrot him by saying the election was "stolen" despite months of evidence that he is getting trounced....

re: Election Update: Clinton Lead Clear and Steady--Nate Silver - emmanuellewis
It is humorous to see people argue that models "don't tell me anything" or make terrible comparisons to weathermen or the third quarter of a tied Lsu game (odds would not be 50/50 btw). This is a constant theme where someone posts then their opinion is reinforced by the board echo chamber. The is...

re: CNN Reporting that Roger Ailes is now working for Trump Campaign - emmanuellewis
Yeah, sometimes "not being politically correct" is just cover for coming up with a terrible idea. Trump is getting crushed by women yet states support for then hires someone who is only available because he was fired within the past month (in a very public manner) for sexual harassment (last coun...

re: The Absolute MADMAN - emmanuellewis
It is incredible how far people on this board go to defend even the shittiest things that Trump does. There is video posted of the woman saying how she gets too emotional about her son who was killed in battle for the United States. Rather than doing the intensive work of typing their name into a go...

re: If you're a conservative and planned to go 3rd party or sit this one out - emmanuellewis
I don't think the "democrats would vote for Fidel Castro" argument holds water when you are using it to prop up a reality star who knows nothing about the job he is running for and consistently stocks his foot in his mouth. In fact, you are basically admonishing people for not "voting for Fidel ...
