6. Remember, the Shillver special sauce is nothing more than GIGO.

 

Just tweak the way you weigh the garbage and the nongarbage* and you can get whatever horse(shit)race you want.

*all public polls are "garbage" to an extent, even the best ones, due to undercounting POCs, not being able to account for GOP/evangelical women too scared to poll Hillary at the dinner table but not to vote her in secret, and the lack of targeted voter data compared to internal polling
