No Subby. Such bullshiat predictions and resulting complacency got us into this mess. Stop reading this shiat and make sure everyone in your neighborhood is voting.
 
2020-10-31 9:11:59 AM  
Vote.

August11: ...make sure everyone in your neighborhood is voting.

All of my neighbors already voted.

When our fair city decided to consolidate all out voting precincts into one "mega" precinct in the local basketball arena, aka "Covid Arena", the vast majority of us early or absentee voted. And we just learned today that nearly half of the poll workers planned for on Tuesday have informed the city they won't be available.

I'm convinced he will win the vote, and take the majority of the electoral college.

I'm also 100% certain Trump and his enablers will do everything in their power to steal the election after the fact.

I don't think voting will be enough. If it's a clear Biden win, and the shenanigans start, we need to be ready to take to the streets so the thieves clearly understand we won't take it lying down.

/Sincerely hope I'm right about the first part but wrong about the second. It would be wonderful to see a peaceful transition of power.

They are already working to steal the election before, during and after the fact.  Have you not been paying attention?

Of course I've been paying attention, that's my point!! The only thing that will stop step two is an overwhelming victory for Biden, one so large that incremental disenfranchisement won't change the outcome. It's possible we'll have a margin of victory that big and we won't have step 2 mean anything. But if it's close? It's time to take to the streets.

Nothing quite like an overfit model that picks and chooses to be right.

And yet someone always believes them
 
2020-10-31 10:19:03 AM  
If that is true, it's beyond aggravating that it would be an indicator in the first place.

I'll believe it when Joe Biden is sworn-in and Donald Trump Jr. is tweeting that his Dad is being held in a jail cell with "ethnics"
 
2020-10-31 12:30:12 PM  
Stop greenlighting crap like this before election day.  Go vote.
 
2020-10-31 12:30:49 PM  
Does the stock market predictor assume that the election will be conducted more or less freely and fairly? Cause if so, that's a hell of an assumption these days.
 
2020-10-31 12:31:34 PM  
The only Wall St. indicator I needed was when Wall Street started donating to Biden 4-1 over Trump.
 
2020-10-31 12:31:54 PM  
VOTE!

It doesn't matter what magic octorocks say, VOTE!

GO VOTE!
 
2020-10-31 12:33:21 PM  
Even if Biden were facing defeat by a landslide he still would have gotten my vote because he is a better candidate and a better human being than Trump by a margin so wide it could host both the grand canyon and subby's mom.
 
2020-10-31 12:33:34 PM  
Every election since 1984 would be 36 years, so 8 elections.

Out of the 30ish elections that have happened since the stock market was a thing.

... Wow, less accurate than flipping a coin? Sign me up, then.

I did do a tarot card reading in yesterday's thread like this.

It pretty much said, VOTE!
It also blamed Jared Kushner for the ire of senior women and warned against civil war.

The market still moves based on the words that come out of Trump's mouth, so I have zero confidence in what traders "believe."

One of the wonderful things about the day after election day will be that the number of posts screeching at people who are already heavily invested in the political process to jUSt VOtE will drop by at least 40%.

I had a neighbor complain at the top of her lungs that she didn't want "Spaniards" cutting her lawn.

F*cking Los Angeles.

"By just six-tenths of a percentage point,"

So razor thin, just like everything else in this goddamned year.

I'm just as happy if they choose not to, actuality.  For my neighborhood to be apathetic this election world be better for all of us.

I'd still drive any one of them to the polls, if asked.

This failed to predict the winner in 1984.

1984.

Doesn't seem like the stock market is any good at this prediting thing.

I'll stick with Nate Silver. Biden has an 89% chance. (And a 37% of flipping Texas!)

So, what's this voting all you kids are talking about?
 
2020-10-31 12:56:30 PM  
This isn't 1984.

/Vote again.
//indicator I like is the under 30 early voters in Texas
///already voted by mail, but Trump told me to go to the polling place and try to vote again just to make sure

I concur.
 
2020-10-31 12:58:20 PM  
Yeah, I know I feel more comfortable knowing Wall Street has picked their winner again.
It isn't like 1984 didn't stop trickling down the wealth to the working class while showing deference to the corporate gods.

to quote 2016

"say it with me -'Madam President' "
 
2020-10-31 1:02:24 PM  
If there's someone out there can some how account for 2020 and make accurate state-level and then Presidential election predictions, they're clearly a witch and should be burned. Because no one has data to tell them anything about this year. Murder hornets? Fire tornadoes? UFO videos. Total chaos!
 
2020-10-31 1:03:15 PM  
I might go ahead and vote anyway, just in case there's someone handing out cookies to the people in line.
 
2020-10-31 1:05:01 PM  
First of all, as everyone has been saying for months -VOTE!! Ignore the headlines. Second, a win isn't enough. It needs to be a blow out. A referendum that sends a sign not only to everyone in power in the United States, but the world. Let the world know we don't accept this bull.

Bootstrapping went out the window and got replaced with the most pathetic pansies I've ever seen in my life.  They talk shiat endlessly until they get the slightest push back, then it's "were being attacked by the left wing radicals!"  I'm so done with it. Republican isn't even my party anymore. They are all cowards and absolutely MUST be shamed till the end of our days. Sadly he's made these morons violent. I fully mean it when I say Trump supporters are domestic terrorists.  Wait till after the election and shiat is gonna hit the fan. We already had domestic terrorist attacked. Trumpers attempting to abduct and kill people. Intimidation at the polls.  They are terrified animals and going to extremes.

I fully expect Trump to tell his supporters to have a revolution and 80% of the country tell them to sit down. But Trumps supporters are engrained now. Even ISIS thought it was the outsider and interpreting religion and governing the right way
