Peter Gemma: Election Prediction Challenge

I want to keep this prediction for 3rd party candidates simple: percentage for the Big Two (Green and Libertarian), and, for other 3rd party and independent candidates, vote totals or specific guesses on states.  Since there are so many in the later category, I thought it best to leave those entries open ended; list as many as you wish.… Read more ...

Gary Johnson: “Horseshit” that he doubled debt as N.M. Governor (from PBS debate with Jill Stein)

Anthony Fisher at reason.com:
