Retweeted by David LeonhardtI'm also skeptical of Steve Mnuchin's comments on taxing the rich. But don't ignore them. https://t.co/NfMRbG24JT

Yes, but moderated is still very welcome. https://t.co/qlMdmgoMdC @Detonato0763 @nytimes They're looking only at votes already counted, not including those out west still being counted (absentee etc).I'm realizing that some of the smartest analyses of what just happened are still those @Nate_Cohn wrote months ago. https://t.co/wGvwVblj3Q @LoganDobson Technically it's 49.7%.

@losowsky We did exactly that in 2014 with spinners. It was delightful -- and still I don't think it solved the problem. Maybe unsolvable. @davidwestphal Funny, I think % support implies *more* certitude than probabilities. But that's obviously an inherently subjective question. @brendancheney Fair. But as a numbers person, I always want to know what toss up means. Is it 40-60% Or 30-70%? Many people want more detail @AlanMCole I don't deserve any credit for the model; it's my excellent colleagues. But thank you. @sangerkatz I loved field goals. Just picking some other ones, too.5. So what, if anything, might be a better language than %s for communicating uncertainty? Seems a question worth some behavioral grappling.4. Yet it’s also clear many people honestly read 70%, 85% or 90% as “going to happen.”3. Other things that happen 15% of time: - a snowy day in Cleveland - rolling a 6 with a pair of dice - an NFL rush gains more than 5 yards2. The various models were clear that Trump had a chance to win: A 10%, 15% or 30% chance is substantial.1. A question to mull: Is there a better alternative output than %-chance in election models?What Americans said they'd heard about the candidates may hold the key to Trump's big upset. https://t.co/DWeTFCpq28 via @bi_politics
