Professor Alan Lichtman on why the polls were wrong and he was right.

Apologies if this has already been posted, but I think there's a ton of common sense in what he talks about.

2. He did not call the election correctly

In 2000, he called the election for Gore, then explained that his method only predicts the winner of the popular vote. Now Clinton won the popular vote and now he claims only that he predicted "almost" every election since 1980.

5. I think the keys theory holds but he interpreted it wrong

He failed to count the foreign-policy success key yet Obama had two: normalizing relations with Cuba and the Iran nuclear deal. He may have personally predicted Trump's win but the keys predicted Clinton's popular vote victory just as they did Gore's.

3. Lets remember it's about ratings and its about getting a talking head on a show to gin up money

for the corporate masters, he is a paid consultant for any of the oligarchies called MSM.

These sooth Sayers are just that.

Did he and his bunch offer the BS of BS, did he mention the reach of what Kobach planted in some states called "Crosscheck" nope, this professor goes around and says it's the party in power that gets hit, well professor, what do you have to say about a meddling FBI Director, or the republican gerrymandering, oh I don't know 26 states into there right wing BS.

Can you tell all of your audience what it is going to look like to have a Chief Justice of the United States, that same one that is a racist when he voted to gut the Voting Rights Act, and he is going to swear in a racist and bigot.

And finally professor have you thought about the long term fact that racist power in charge now, only needs 6 more states to have a Constitutional Convention to do a line by line re-write of the present Constitution to fit three Tory needs, to have some f***ing king, that is a serial predator and is still in my book a criminal fraudster, racists, bigot.

And so for you to paint this picture that you paint for your own serve serving needs is just that self serving.

So go back under your rock and take your polls with you and trying to "normalize" your BS

Still P***ssed Off
