No News IS News
These days the first thing to know is no news, IS the news. We’ll talk about it in No-News-Is-News-Bob Davis Podcast 953.
Most important for this walk and talk podcast is that some people think there are still ‘objective sources’.
First of I do walk and talk podcasts for a reason. These freewheeling podcasts are my way of integrating the ‘heavier’ podcasts I’ve done recently.
Walking and Talking is therapy for me.
Weirdest Election Ever
Secondly we’re less than 60 days away from what is sure to be one of the weirdest US elections in memory.
As a result of walking and talking I hit upon the idea we’re still being poorly served by all kinds of media in this country.
Lies are Truth…Truth Is A Lie
Even more is the question of where people turn when the intent of every source is to convince, manipulate or spread lies as ‘truth’.
Pundits Addicted To Predicting
Above all my focus lately has been reporting on political polls. In No-News-Is-News-Bob Davis Podcast 953 I take a few shots at the so called pundits and their predictions.
Rediscovering The Battleground States
Certainly the media has recently rediscovered the so called ‘battleground states’. In recent elections, mostly located in the central US.
Bob Davis Podcasts Has Been In The Battlegrounds All Along
We’ve been discussing the battleground state polls exclusively since 2019. In addition, most of the media aren’t reporting those polls properly currently.
National Polls and Manipulation
Above all this is the place to get analysis on key state polls without the partisanship. In addition I don’t make predictions and I don’t care who ‘wins’ this election.
Finally as I think we’re in the midst of a political and social realignment. No one can tell you where that’s going to end up.
Something IS Wrong
For instance the feeling we all have something is wrong but we just can’t put our finger on what it is.
Walking Through A Late Summer Night
To sum up it’s always better to walk through a still late summer night and talk these things out.
That’s what a walk and talk is all about.
(Editor’s Note: I hate it when I have to do corrections, but this was a big mistake, so…Mentioned a Real Clear Politics metric which compares 2016 averages to 2020 averages between Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers then to Joe Biden’s now. I reversed those numbers. Biden is running about one point ahead of Clinton in the top battleground states and substantially better than the former Secretary of State in other metrics. However this doesn’t change how close the polls are overall in the battleground states. But given that I reversed the numbers, the analysis that Biden is running behind Clinton doesn’t work. All the more reason not to do analysis of the polls on the run in a walk and talk podcast.)
