November 8, 2016 Hanalei, Kauai.
There are some postings out there wondering "How the Polls Got It Wrong." Well, there was one poll that was right: USC/LA Times.
The 2016 USC Dornsife / LA Times Presidential Election Poll represents a pioneering approach to tracking changes in Americans' opinions throughout a campaign for the White House. Around 3000 respondents in our representative panel are asked questions on a regular basis on what they care about most in the election, and on their attitudes toward their preferred candidates. The "Daybreak poll" is updated just after midnight every day of the week.
Yet, we all now know that Donald Trump is going to be the next President of the United States. There is likely to be overreaction. The stock market is plummeting and is expected to open about 5% lower tomorrow. There are many liberal pundits who are wringing their hands. "Woe is us." At the same time, many other voters are celebrating.
The sun will rise tomorrow. The election wasn't rigged. And Big Data is not always right. Even Sympile.
Have a Question? It's Sympile.
