#1 Is that the percentage chance of his senatorial campaign?

#4 and he'll do a great job taking over from President Hillary!

#5 Out of the 10 most recent polls used, 9 were "likely voters", 7 were online.

Prior to August 15th polls were mostly registered voters. An obvious switch of data points stacking the results. DNC Pravda is laying it on thick with no worries of being reported as liars.

#6 Ref #5: Pravda is laying it on thick with no worries of being reported as liars.

Not much of a concern with our MSM either.

#7  with no worries of being reported as liars.

Reported? No. Believed to be liars by the general population? Absolutely.

Their only hope is to create enough noise that it will depress Republican turnout.

#8 So, no need to risk covid by going to a voting station?

#9 Or the more dangerous than covid option of driving to the voting station.

#10 About a week ago, O'Reilly was interviewed on News Max and he also said Biden is likely to take the election.

I don't believe it. IMO, we are in for a repeat of 2016 but even with a larger margin. There is no enthusiasm for Biden. A handful of people show up at Biden rallies if anyone shows at all. Compare that with Trump rallies. They are huge even in this COVID-19 environment.

#16 If Biden is going to win then why is the attendance to his meetings so low? Why so few "Biden" signs in front of homes? He is doing far worse than Trump and far worse than Clinton did in 2016

#17 Kamala is Corbyn in drag...

And looking at Biden he might not even make it to inauguration...

Will Americans elect the Willie Brown sucker as president?

#18 So Drudge is so f'ed up now that he totally "forgot" what happened four years ago.

But going up against the MSM, Farcebook, Twitter, YouTube, Hollywood, etc., it ain't easy (but evidently they didn't learn their lesson from four years ago, either, isn't that right, "Madame President"?

#19  So Drudge is so f'ed up now that he totally "forgot" what happened four years ago.

Matt Drudge sold the site some time ago, about when the change in focus became noticeable. It’s apparently been run by unsupervised interns ever since.

#20 Repeated from the other thread: JFM, for the opinion piece you submitted, Statistics and the US elections, did you forget the link or is it your personal opinion? Both are welcome, as it is well-argued, but if you got it somewhere else we need a link.

Merci beaucoup!

#21 Liberals are exaggerating their lead so folks down feel hopeless. Conservatives are mostly going along lest overconfidence leads to low turnout and loss.

We are getting near the point when the polling folks start to slowly drift closer to reality to avoid looking like total fools and not worth paying in future elections.

#22 T.W. I wondered what happened to the Drudge site. At some point the change in the site became very noticeable. It tended to be left of center but then it went pretty far left of center. In addition it had an anti-Trump aspect to it.

Biden 91% chance of winning? A load of B.S.

#23 TW.

It is a personal opinion. Now I graduated in statitics and while I forgot most of the maths I still have the thinking habits. Like using indicators. Or considering structure effects (the part about Republicans in houses and Democrats in appartments that is why I compared Biden and Clinton).

I would need more indicators and a larger sample of people to be totally sure but I am sceptical about a Biden's victory without ballot stuffing

Ah, don't forget "How could we have lost?! Republican stolen election coup! Fire up the fire bugs!"

#25 Drudge is like Disney. Neither reflect their creators. Just that Disney has deeper pockets to burn through with fiduciary responsibility thrown to the winds.

#26 Drudge (and Bill O'Reilly) remind me of an old boss I had in their Rise and Downfall:
A hard-working Micro-manager that gets older and starts delegating things to their staff -- Revealing that they are terrible Managers.

#27 Drudge went TDS a while back. Did Trump is in Mattt's wheaties?

#28 I think Drudge sold out and part of the deal was silence about the deal.
