24. Well...The Average Can Be Skewed By Outliers. That's Why I Prefer To Look At The Median.

And Sam Wang who nailed 04 and 08 doing just that has O as a prohibitive favorite*. Now, he could be wrong. Just because he's a genius and teaches neuroscience at an Ivy League university doesn't mean he's infallible but until he and others who are using similar methods are proven fallible I will remain guardedly optimistic.

What's the alternative. Being miserable for the next two weeks.


PEACE
DSB





*Wang only uses state polls.
