Poll prediction apps like the one on MTV News are helping us predict who will be the next president of the United States, but the odds are not what they used to be.
We asked one pollster for his opinion and he gave us this warning.
“I’m not sure we should even use an app to predict the outcome of the election,” said Andrew Kohut, who’s worked on the presidential campaigns of former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
“I think it’s just an exercise in futility.”
There are a lot of different apps for the job.
You can use an online calculator to determine the winner in a state or local election, or you can use a virtual poll.
But if you want to see who’s going to win, you need to go to the polls, vote, and record your vote.
“If you look at the average vote, you’ll see that the Democrats and Republicans are about equally likely to get 270 electoral votes, so that’s where we’re at,” said Kohut.
That’s not the case in the election of 2016.
The Republicans won 270 electoral college votes, while the Democrats won 304.
The Democrats took advantage of a statistical anomaly in the way the vote is counted.
In this election, the average person is going to have more than enough votes to win the presidency.
In the past, it was the Democrats who won a majority of the popular vote, but they only won 270 of the electoral college seats.
That’s because they received more votes than the other parties, which are considered the majority party.
“This election was not a close race,” Kohut said.
“We’ve got a long way to go before we see this as a close election.”
And if you were to try to predict who would win, what kind of people would vote, how many delegates would they have, and so on, you’d get a lot less information.
There’s just too much uncertainty to know how things will turn out, Kohut says.
The 2016 presidential election will be a test of our democracy, but it won’t be the last.
The election of 2020 is expected to be more closely contested.
There are many different models for predicting who will win, and the forecasts vary.
But it’s unlikely that the same type of uncertainty and chaos will exist as it did in the 2016 presidential race.
“A lot of these forecasts are pretty similar, but with a little more nuance and more uncertainty,” said David Anderson, the head of forecasting at FiveThirtyEight.
“In 2016, we had a fairly accurate model.
This year, there’s a lot more uncertainty and a lot worse models are going to be used.”
The election will take place in 2020, and there’s no guarantee that everything will be perfect.
There will be an increase in the number of ballots cast, and a change in the results.
There may also be some votes that don’t count at all, which could be a problem.
But if there’s one thing that’s clear about this election cycle, it’s that no one’s perfect.
That means it’s up to us to make some predictions about who will ultimately win.
“The question is whether we can predict the winners, and what are the best guesses for who will get the 270 electoral vote and who will lose, and then see if that’s predictive or not,” Kohuet said.
