You’re a senior manager and that’s your interpretation of that data? This gives all of us hope we too can rise to the level of our incompetence!

At best, that survey took <600 people across 15 states and showed the difference. So first, let’s agree that 40 people per state is probably not a representative sample. Secondly, they only gave aggregated results - this is because they couldn’t go state by state based on the small sample but somehow you interpret that as Trump winning each of the 15 states?

Let’s take a look at the average of polls instead of the one you’ve cherry picked and see what the data says.

Really gotta love a guy that sees his candidate down by 5+ points nationally and tries to claim victory!

Trump fans: "the polls were wrong in 2016, so polls are a joke"

Also Trump fans: "except this one, that shows Trump winning!"

I’m more concerned with the quality of the poll and SSRS as a capable org. It was phone surveys (land and mobile) to 1100 ppl. Battleground is a single category, so there’s no proper weighting for distribution and representativeness of the sample. If that weren’t bad enough, the difference is pretty much in the range of statistical error

Valid arguments. To add to your point, I also question why this was even a news article that attracted attention in the first place.

And, more broadly, I question why gross negligence with data interpretation seems to be a recurring theme. It's exhausting to have to constantly set the record straight, and I find it distracting to real issues that we face as a country.

Hello everyone!
I recently found out that I was being paid less than everyone in the team (more than 25% gap to more expe teammates, around 15% less than new hires)
We all had the same responsibilities, I consider I even had a heavier workload (talking in past tense since I very recently made an internal move).
Things to consider:
On a work visa
Non-white
Non-male
What would you recommend doing?
Keeping it to myself?
Speaking up? How? With who?

-TIA

Trump had one job as a leader. Be a leader to all and give his best to his abilities. Unfortunately he took advantage of the position and kept dividing the country, he upset a lot of people and just believed his base will win him a second term, very bad idea Trump. 4 years ago when he won I was not happy but I wanted him to succeed and prove us all wrong. He failed woefully, he is done out here!!!
