Also, I think Dems should consider whether they might do better in the South w/ black candidates (I think they probably do)

NEW: As one University of Mississippi official publicly denounced racism, he courted support from a wealthy alum who sent him emails calling black students "African hookers" & Serena Wiliams an "ape." The donor helped pick UM's new chancellor in 2019. (1)

People say, "This is like a scene out of VEEP" but this literally reads exactly like it was actually scripted for VEEP. I don't know how we come back from this. All buffonery in politics will now just elicit PTSD.

And, in one interaction, political comedy was ruined forever.

I've had active TB and frankly, I'm terrified. I would not want to go in for sputum testing at this moment in time. Nor for a chest x-ray. And I live in a privileged nation (the U.S.)

I can tell you right now that countries w/ functioning governments and public health officials w/ their eye on the ball are doing everything in their power to drive the rate of transmission of coronavirus down to a negligible value before flu season.

We need to be talking more about what will happen to hospitals when coronavirus and the flu coincide. And we need to be talking more about how improper openings of schools will augment this potential catastrophe.

Seriously, you might not be hurting now, but you will be. Or people you know will be. And the more everyone hurts, the more other actions, like climate change, will be hurt. Ask yourself, based on the past four months, who do you want in charge of an economic recovery?

What people really need to think about right now, among a million other things, is who they would rather lead them through a depression or bad recession over the next four years: Democrats or Republicans. You have two options.

That is one of the more nonsensical things I've read on this website and that is really saying something

Also, there may be arguments that having a poll as one of many tasks you are doing for money can introduce more error than a poll taken in isolation.

This is problematic enough in psych research, where I have seen it used, but much more problematic for political polling. Online already has issues, but if your online tool is basically white men who are paid to do online tasks, the sampling is going to be really bad.

Pretty sure the issue is w/ sampling in a way that would be particularly problematic for political polling. The demographics are very narrow-- mostly white men, 20-40, I believe.
