Presidential values

Good tweet on the photo below.

It doesn’t say anything about the contrast with Trump.  It doesn’t have to.  Sad!

Was 2016 the most winnable election in modern history?

These tweets and the blog post that inspired them discuss the false concept that 2016 was the most winnable election in modern history.

Nate Silver writes: “The background conditions in 2016 (no incumbent, average economy, Democrats in power for 8 years, high partisanship) weren’t particularly favorable to Clinton; instead, most “fundamentals” models from political scientists saw the race as a toss-up.”

Jon Cooper also makes an excellent point about voter suppression.
