This is wholly not directed at anyone here (because Silver really does suck at punditry and is kind of a troll) but anyone who thinks his data “missed” Trump is an idiot who doesn’t understand probabilities. Trump was a not as likely but imminently possible outcome.

Something like Leicester City winning the English league a few years ago was far, far less probable.

Well no, that’s not how math works.

You could view it as a half-vote for Hillary and a half-vote for Trump, I suppose.

^^ That is how it works in a two party system. If there were more than two parties, then things would be different but that is not where we are.

I'll round it up to a whole vote for Trump since your state went to him and you didn't do anything to stop it

If the libtards can't get Yang on the ballet, you can bet I'm voting for Trump. MAGA! I'll take 4 more years of this retarded child over any of the shit the dems are throwing against the wall (aside from Yang).

Ok what is up with republicans liking Yang so much? Seems like the Republicans that would never vote dem, or that are unsatisfied with Trump but would still vote for Trump over almost any dem, just love Yang. Whats up with that?

Ubi is the most socialist possible solution. The only reason he doesn’t get smeared with this lace label is the gop hasn’t put much towards it.

He’s more of a libertarian leaning leftist if anything. He’s more of a populist than he markets himself as is his biggest flaw I think.

^some socialist solutions are effective. I'm always game for free cash. My biggest issue with his $1k Freedom Fries is it's not really enough to make a significant difference in society, but it's enough to cost a shit ton of money. It's definitely a flawed premise, but I truly believe he has America's best interest at heart more than anybody else in the race.

So their logic is everyone who didn't vote for Hillary voted for Trump(which i don't agree with) but at the same time they aren't the least bit concerned about addressing the reasons why the overwhelming majority of the country "voted" for Trump.

I think there is a high probability you're correct here, but for now, I actually think there's a higher probability that his wealth stems from a lot of Russian sources. WAY too much lying and obstruction went on if that wasn't the case and he has certainly gone to absurd lengths to embroil himself in Russian and Ukrainian controversy whilst effectively ignoring the rest of the world, to include America.

Speaking as a mathematician: I don't what sort of "mathematics" you Russian trolls might employ, but using conventional definitions 304 individual people in no way constitutes an "overwhelming majority" of the USA.

LOL!

Assuming there are 250 million eligible voters and Hillary got 66 million votes?

That would mean 75% of the country did not vote for Hillary. What am I missing?

What part are you missing? The part where you claim not voting for Clinton is voting for Trump. I respect that you don't agree with it; I don't agree with it either. But if you don't agree with it, what compelled you to conclude, "the overwhelming majority of the country "voted" for Trump."?

His argument makes sense. The people cogent enough to vote for someone other than clinton or trump are just as guilty as those that don’t vote at all. Not that I agree with that, but his argument holds water

Its in quotation marks because the premise of the conclusion is that I'm using their logic. Let me break it down for you.


1.Anyone who did not vote for Clinton, essentially 'voted for trump'. (opinion)
2.The overwhelming majority of the country did not vote for Clinton (fact)
3. The overwhelming majority of the country 'voted for trump' (logical conclusion)

This is an opinion (1) that many people on here hold and you can see it in this very thread. (2) is non-debatable fact. Conclusion (3) is deduced if you hold opinion (1), and accept fact (2).

What compelled me to point it out? I'm tired of everyone pushing this opinion (1)

Hopefully, this logical exercise will show the people who hold opinion (1) to how ridiculous the implications of it are. Clearly, they haven't thought it through and are just frustrated that Trump won and maybe thinking about conclusion (3) will force them to drop opinion (1) or at the very least, keep 1-3 and consider the reasons why Hillary was so bad that 75% of the country would rather do what they consider 'voting for Trump'

^^ It's not functionally different from not voting at all. I could just as easily sit at home and not vote, and maybe that would make you happier, but that's not what I'm interested in and not what is productive.

Voting 3rd party is essentially not voting, but contributing a data point that (a) it wasn't out of apathy; your vote is very much in play, not just disinterest or a failure to turn out, and (b) indicates a direction in which candidates could have been nominated or campaigned towards in order to capture your vote.

Any moderate Democrat is being called "right of center" by liberals in 2019. Obama would be considered far-right or alt-right with his immigration policy, i.e. the policy that there should be any border enforcement at all.

There is way more to vote on than just president. We have ballot initiatives in California like legalizing weed and property taxes. The local stuff probably effect your day to say much more than whatever turnip sits for Prez.

In fact one of the first times I voted in 2000, in NC it had that bond initiative that ultimately did all the work over the last two decades at NCSU.

This isn't a now thing. Colbert at the time referred to the election between Obama and Romney as that of one between an English conservative and a 1900's Robber Baron.

I work very closely with a UK team and they'd describe Obama as a far right Tory. So international context is important and what Obama was or was not isn't something that has change but what we now have in office most certainly is.

Crazy shit my coworker says

Him: yeah, I think the president was right to pardon those military people

Me: the ones found guilty by the military of war crimes? Like the guy posing for pictures with a corpse?

Him: yep, you would have to be there in war to know what it's like. War makes you loopy in your brain. You're welcome to sign up...

Me: well apparently the military courts, perhaps made up of people who have served, thought their crimes were bad enough to find them guilty. Through your reasoning, how does the president, who has never served, have a better grasp on the situation?

Him: I'm not going to get into it...

Me:. You already did...

Him:. O_____________o
