Offgrid In Trump Country

Firstly wouldn’t it be cool to live offgrid in a home that actually pays you? I am in Kentucky and my guest in Offgrid-In-Trump-Country-Bob-Davis-Podcast-964 builds these homes.

Rural Kentucky

Secondly rural Kentucky like most of rural America, is Trump country.

Stolen Election

Out here they think the democrats stole the election from President Trump.

Lots of Stories

Most importantly there are a lot of stories about ballots all over the country.

Jay Hamilton

But Jay Hamilton is unique.

Curious and Active Mine

Certainly Jay’s uniqueness is driven by his curious and active mind.

Lots of Fun

This is what makes spending time with him so much damn fun!

Benford’s Law

However when he applies his intellect to Benford’s Law and precinct level election data, sparks fly.

Election Fraud?

Above all many wonder about election fraud.

Nomad Adventures

The great thing about being a nomad is the opportunity to meet and talk with people like Jay Hamilton. You get to join me in this effort in Offgrid-In-Trump-Country-Bob-Davis-Podcast-964.

Big City Friends Wonder

Moreover my big city friends keep asking me what Trump supporters think.

Meet Jay

Therefore I give you Jay. I do not pass judgement on his theories. I’ll leave that to you.

We’re All Human Beings

In the same vein I have learned we are all human beings.

Some Very Nice People

When I was covering the democrat caucuses in Iowa, my Trump friends wanted to know was up with “those people”.

I noted the fact that many of the democrats I’d met were very nice people.

Check This Analysis

Finally I think everyone should check out Jay’s analysis of what could have happened in the 2020 election.

Getting Offgrid?

And if you are looking to get off grid Jay is your guy.

Easy To Make Dumb Mistakes

As a result there is always a point where it’s easy for me to make a dumb mistake.

Early In The Trip

Above all these mistakes happen early in the trip or when I am preoccupied.

The Green Pump

Firstly this particular mistake has to do with the green pump for diesel as opposed to gasoline. I’ll tell you more in Mistakes-Final Polls-Bob Davis Podcast 961.

Final State By State Polls

In addition after a major delay to address my mistake I have to do a final poll run down before the election on November 3rd.

Getting Extra In This Podcast

Consequently this podcast is a little extra. Longer. Some observations about life on the road and mistakes and a run down of the polls.

Pollsters and the Reporters Who Love Them

In the same vein you know how I feel about polling and media coverage this year. If you don’t click here.

Dangerous Predictions

Certainly people are taking liberties and making predictions polling should not be used for.

It’s All Been Worked Out

As a result many people are under the impression this has all been worked out.

Nothing Has Been Worked Out

In fact nothing has been worked out.

Pick A Direction

Finally you’ll learn in Dumb-Mistakes-Final Polls-Bob Davis Podcast 961 that Election 2020 can really go any number of directions.

Jumping The Gun Again?

First of all they’re jumping the gun again. Learn more in Jumping-The-Gun-On-2020-Bob Davis Podcast 958.

Secondly I don’t care who wins the presidential election in 2020.

Leaps Of Faith

However I can’t ignore the leaps of faith when it comes to candidate preference polls in this election.

There Are Limits

In other words there are limits to the conclusions to be drawn from political polling.

Bob Davis Podcast Coverage Of Election 2020

Certainly this has been the subject of more than one political podcast this year.

Battleground State Review Series

Consequently it’s time for another review of the polls in the battleground states.

Even more paying special attention to balancing breathless predictions about ‘who’s going to win’.

Too Many Factors For Predictions

Most importantly there are too many factors to consider a prediction about the outcome of the vote in these battleground states.

But That Doesn’t Stop The Media

In addition it sure looks to me like media is jumping the gun. Again.

And in a world where everything one candidate does is right a proper and everything the other does is wrong and misguided, I am not surprised.

Non Partisan. No Attacks. No Defense.

Finally I don’t seek to defend or attack either mainline party candidate.

Blind Spot

Instead I point out a significant blind spot with almost all media in the United States in this election year.

Don’t Know What Will Happen November 3rd

In conclusion we don’t know what the outcome of this election will be. I think it is very difficult to predict given the many moving parts this year.

New Ballot Wrinkles

For example, absentee ballots, early voting and so on.

Balanced Coverage

To sum up I have been producing balanced coverage of these polls. That includes explanations how on they work and their limitations.
