    This is exactly what's wrong with politics today.
    I didn't say the situations were identical but the situation of someone being insulted for supporting the president IS and that was the only point.

    Here's the thing - he wasn't removed from the Democrat Party. He lost a primary, then chose to run as an Independent.

    So, you know he wasn't removed, but you totally heard people say mean things about him, so you'll claim he was removed. Very well then, moving on.

    Nate Silver. Proving once again that math>gut feelings.

    I feel like this is a dangerous road to go down though. I mean if statistics can tell us so accurately how elections will turn out months before an election, will people be deterred from voting?
    It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.
