Re: Politics & Current Events

PA looking likeliest tipping point state currently and polling avg. there is about +5 Biden - even NC here is presently a toss-up - so people probably should feel ok about public sentiment, it's more that voter suppression perhaps most worrying

Re: Politics & Current Events

Probably not. It’s pretty far away from the likely tipping points This seems like an especially difficult year to guess the tipping point state, partly because Biden's current lead is large. 538 has Ohio as the 8th most likely tipping point state with a 2.8% chance of being the state to push one ov...

he always admits (via twitter, 538 pod) that he needs to add new variables/adjustments to correct what he perceives as a shortcoming in the model, to where it just starts to approach meaningless horserace narrative stuff he decried for so long
