speaking of shrinkwrapping

Given that Obama is far more popular that Daddy Diapers, seems a poor strategy.

A poll of the MS/L media would be at 95%+ for obama.  I am surprised silver is still out there predicting after he was embarrassed in previous elections.  He must be employed by one of those 95% ers.

Re: speaking of shrinkwrapping

Huh?

You are terminally infected.

Silver/538 one of the few pollsters in ‘16 that had Dennison close in the Electoral College prediction.  He didn’t call it, but wasn’t as far off as most. Some who predicted a landslide right up until the last day.

And, yeah, Obama is pretty damned popular with a lot of regular old folks. I’m guessing particularly with regular old folks who tend to vote.

OK, a 29% chance for a Trump win is "not far off"; Hillary an 80% chance to win Wisconsin is "not far off" - got it.

Yea, those "regular" folks in the MS/L media. Obama did definitely spent his 8 years trying hard to be popular, dropping mic's, etc., it's just that the regular old folks seen right through it - but yea, there are plenty who bought Obama's shtick - hook, line & sinker.
