re: Mike Napoli has now lost 2 WS Game 7's and 3 of the 4 WS he's played in - emmanuellewis
He would've won the MVP if Texas had not blown it. And Josh Hamilton would have one of the most famous HRs ever if they hadn't blown it again....

re: MSNBC: 28% of Florida GOP early voters go for HRC - emmanuellewis
[quote]If registered Republicans are splitting for Hillary at anything like 28%, then that is crazy. I could maybe buy it for one city or county, but not for FL. I think their methodology must be flawed somewhere.[/quote] I don't think the methodology is flawed; it is simply an outlier. There are...

re: Nate Bronze already hedging....... - emmanuellewis
[quote]No math is hard for you. You and others run around thinking Clinton is 99.999% to win. Do I need to explain the math for you? [/quote] No one in this thread has said that. You, however, have shown that you don't understand the models you are posting about. [quote]Even with the all of th...

re: Are women really offended by Trump's comments? - emmanuellewis
[quote]hsfolk[/quote] This is a Trump thread. Feel free to start your own HRC thread. I've seen this thread started and several people starting threads about how people who listen to rap music should not be offended. Because obviously people who listen to (not perform) are on the same level as so...

[quote]Could it be you're in a Trump-supporting bubble?[/quote] It is truly amazing the bubble this board lives in. I look forward to next week when posters inform everyone how no one in their social circle is voting for Clintone ben after this controversy....

re: Are women really offended by Trump's comments? - emmanuellewis
Is there a place online with a larger consensus of idiots than this board? I'm sure the answer is yes but where are those places? There is nothing Trump could do or say that would not be defended (poorly) or accepted by a majority of people here....

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...
