ColonelCathcart: monsatano: ColonelCathcart: Unobtanium: The article doesn't say anything about the race being too close to call. It's about perceived black voter turnout. The lastest poll I could find had the GOP candidate up by 8 points, on a poll with a 3.5 MoE.

Do I have to math for you?

If Biden/Espy carry even just a few white people, and all the black people show up vote that means Espy can win:

38% Black (all of them)
12% White
1 extra voter

Unskew the polls!

What? I'm not at all doing anything other than pointing out how close 38% is to 50.0000001% demographically speaking.


It's an old fark meme, but I respect your statisticals.

Weatherkiss: I will laugh my ass off if Mississippi flips blue. I'm not counting on it. But if it happens I'll be howling with laughter. When Republicans have lost Mississippi, you know they've really farked up somewhere.

Tfa essentially claims that if they get the same Black voter electoral percentage as they did in 2012, 36%, there is a decent chance of Espy snagging the senate seat. And the article goes into how much energy is in the community to make that happen.

VOTE!

The media needs to stop pretending like they are the shot callers and using the phrase "too close to call" as if they are the deciding factor and then the audience just accepts whatever the fark they say on election night based on scant results. We won't truly know what the fark went down until December and by then the unfortunate fate may have already been sealed by impatience and foolishness.
