    Why does he have to ungraciously crowbar the fact that he's Jamaican in every post regardless of the topic

    No one cares and Bob Marley died because he chose to be edgy instead of getting treatment

    You won't understand what i did or why. It's a bit beyond your intelligence.


    First off, it's for religious reasons why he originally choose not to do treatment. Secondly, he did do the treatment after his wife convinced him, the problem was that the doctors did a shit job and by time they rediscovered the remaining cancer (year and a half later) it was too far developed and spread.

    Well what, the "Jamaican kid sitting on a wall"? Is it some kind of genius reference to Humpty Dumpty and Trump or something

    They gave Trump a 30% chance of winning the morning of Election Day. Nate Silver went on record saying trump has a one in three chance of winning. Their projections are only as good as the data they recieve. Even then, a 30% chance isn't nothing. The Cubs had a lower probability to win the World Series. The cavs had a lower probability of winning the finals last year. Probability aren't predictions.

    Yes, it was a prediction – a forecast, as they call it – based on models that were apparently inferior to Allan Lichtman’s and Helmut Norpoth’s models, which called the winner of not only this election but nearly every presidential election since 1984 and 1912 respectively. Another model that picked Trump is an AI system called MogAI, which has been right since it was created in 2004 by an Indian entrepreneur named Sanjiv Rai. So there are far more reliable sources out there, yet you chose to put all your faith in a sports analyst. Live and learn.

    No poll or forecast showing him losing ever seemed legit to me. The guy was filling stadiums while she couldn’t fill a high school gym. Her crowds were smaller than his overflow crowds! The only reason she won the popular vote is because we don’t have voter ID laws anymore (I wasn’t asked to show any ID at all). If you knock out all the illegal aliens Obama reassured and encouraged to vote, then Trump won by millions of votes.

    This....is not true but of course people are running with it and assuming it is, has almost 35,000 retweets already and the guy showed his twitter stats about how over 2 million people saw it..So crazy how quick and easy misinformation can spread and be taken as facts by most people.

    It's their responsibility to collect reliable data. Sports is not relatable to an election. Their model and data are shit.

    They collect data from a wide variety of pollsters. A vast majority of them showed a 4 point lead nationally for Clinton a day before the election. They were very suspicious of that and stated that in their last write-up before Election Day. This election had a lot of uncertainty and a high percentage of undecided voters compared to previous elections. They warned about that constantly throughout the election cycle. Most other models showed Clinton with a 90+% chance of winning the election, 538's didn't buy it. It was one of the closest.

    Also, probability is probability. It doesn't matter if its sports or elections. Something has a 1% of occurring, than that's something. 538 also posted an article a couple days before Election Day how trump was a normal polling error away from winning.

    Lichtman was wrong in 2000 (picked Gore would win) and Norpoth has been right the past several elections but his model showed trump winning the popular vote which he did not. Your reasoning for why he didn't win the popular vote is bullshyt.

    That’s why I said nearly every election.
    It doesn’t matter. Both professors predicted Trump to win the election.
    Did Obama not give illegal aliens the green light to vote without repercussions a few days before election day? Are there not at least 11 million illegals living in the US? Is it not true that the majority of illegal alien voters voted for Hillary Clinton?

    @lordkimura is right in all fronts. Nate Silver( and everybody else who was so sure about the polling) and his arrogance probably played a large role in Hilary losing. I'm sure a lot of people sat home thinking she had this in the bag but there had been a palpable feeling around the country that polls can't pick up and it's why people like myself, LK and many others were sure he was going to win. Silver and others could have thrown out the numbers with a caveat like "Hey these are the numbers but seeing as how I got almost every primary wrong this election could be different so go vote" but his(and many other Dems) arrogance/stupidity ended up losing the White House
