    If anything, our state has shown a path for state who want to.

      Thank you, Simon Rosenberg, via Vox, for the explainer. Handy, you or someone cited him as a voice cautioning against any red wave, much less a big one. Too bad the narrative might have cost us the House.
      Simon was way out in front because he talked to actual pollsters not people who interpret them or aggregate them. He saw the flaw in what Nate and Cook Report were doing...

      When it became clear after EN that the wave wasn't happening the media started to ask people like him how the narrative got so messed up. Someone put it this way:

      "pollsters asked respondents if crime was a major factor and they said yes. The pundits stopped reading right there. The pollsters followed up though asking who was to blame and it was rarely Biden or the Dems and that was also the case for inflation and gas prices."

      Also lots of anecdotal stories about how if pundits talked to conservative women they never asked them the abortion question...

      It was either laziness or trying to force a narrative so badly it bordered on malpractice. It's why I argue against stuff like 538...it leaves the context out. Stats show Bidens approval rating sucks yet he had an amazing midterms and no one seems keen on replacing him with a GOPer. There are mitigating factors at play that get lost in the analytics. Same held true for Trump...polls can't really express the "Cult of Personality " he had which is why despite his dismal numbers in polling he overperformed. You need more info...

      As for The House...they lost it cause NY went sideways both because of the Court ruling and bad choices.

        • Aren't these counties Kari Lake won? What is the point to just delay because Maricopa certified it's over.

                  If Walker wins, the best he can hope to accomplish as Senator would be to abstain on each and every vote.

                    Well, that fits with the right's abstinence-only policy....

                              If Warnock does win, it's too bad this seat is not more critical; it would be an even stronger statement.

                              Either way, it's pretty clear that Dump's appeal is weakening in Ga.

                                Yep...

                                If this was a normal election Walker's advisors would have shut him up months ago. His numbers go down every time he speaks near a mic.
