    Present tense is key.

    538 isnít exactly credible when it comes to determining Trumpís popularity.

    Ehhh not really. There were a lot of ďat least heís not hillaryĒ people who have remorse and thereís a dip and record high streak of disapproval. But not enough to counteract the Dem identity crisis that will split them or lose moderates.

    Yeah, they were off by almost a percentage point over 130 million voters. What a joke of an organization.

    Actually they are very credible. There methodology saw Trump coming. In the days leading up to the election, they shifted their odds from about 90% to about 60% based on signs they saw. That's pretty impressive and a bit scary that they were able to work out odds that turned out to be so predictive.

    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.

    You do realize that they had Trump with a nearly 30% chance to win still right?

    Do you understand how that works? All things considered he won pretty narrowly from 3 states. Which means that things were not nearly as odd as you and Trumpers try to make it out to be.

    You all make it seem like an MVP getting a base hit is the most unheard of thing in the world and thus everything is broken.

    They also got it right from a national perspective. And all their predictions are based on available data. The night before the election Nate was warning about no early voting info in PA, low early votes in Florida and there was virtually no good polling data in MI and WI because pollsters saw it as Dem stronghold. He said it again and again and yet the next day everyone blasted him.

    Iím not a huge fan of his for other reasons, but his approach is still the best out there.

    Fun fact: Hillary Clinton has been absolved of wrong doing in her email issue. Any apologies coming? Or are Republicans pretending it didn't happen?

    I was going to say 538 is pretty objective and just sticks with the data available.

    Nate Silver is human, and like anyone susceptible to his own internal bias, but generally sticks to the data when making a post or statement.

    The real issue is that our constant need to know in advance is ruining real political action and dialogue. We canít even wait a few days for vote counting and now we need to know whoís ahead in the polls months before the election.

    Polls cause complacency. That was one of Hillarys issues (among others) in 2016.
