Pundit Nate Silvers is not interesting at all. Save your time. His predictive modeling was slightly interesting when few were crunching data similarly, but in today’s real-time data crunching world he and his team are meh. And before someone calls me a Trump guy, or a lefty, I’m a thinking moderate, so sorry. 🤷🏻‍♂️

It's this type of politics chat that shows the main speakers have no idea about Republican Party politics. They really need to get some diversity of thought to make it a better show.

Really annoyed at the lack of mention of Andrew Yang. He is clearly right alongside Pete, while having the momentum only compared to Warren. His appeal and chances to beat Trump is likely the highest... bad data coverage by FiveThirtyEight

For a podcast titled "What To Look For In The 4th Debate" they spent the first 36 minutes talking about the possibility of a Trump Impeachment...

You'll soon realize that this is going to become a race between Warren and Yang. #Yang2020 is the right choice for the country+world going into 2021++ I don't know why you bother discussing the likes of Klobuchar/Castro/Bennett/Booker/etc. sooooo much more than Yang. Just look at the Google Trends data and compare all-candidate events data (e.g. Iowa Soapbox) for crying out loud! Yang is absolutely dominating!!!! It's a no contest. Yes... it needs to translate to votes... but with these numbers it's highly likely that he's going to get massive support at the ballot box. Y'all are numbers people at 538 I thought?!? ....also, don't call him a "weirdo" - talking to you Claire. #HumanityFirst and #MathWINS

I can't believe I heard the words, "what if Bernie had won primary and lost the general?"... yeah and what if your mother was your uncle's colon? Sanders would have won by eighty electoral college votes last time, maybe thirty or forty this time. Wake up.

You guys are missing so much of the story. Look beyond the polls - web-based indicators point to Andrew Yang dominating this thing. Realize that you are stuck in a bubble with your analyses! #Yang2020

with all the respect to Biden en Sanders but they are much too old. No democrat above 50 has been elected since Carter

note to progressives: do not refer to cowardly conservatism as "realistic" if you want progress.
