    simple inputs like baseball and even elections, especially when it got down to just 2 serious contenders.

    When it comes to spending or climate change then the complexity is way beyond his methods.  

    When he adds bad data to begin what he is doing is worse than worthless, but dangerous because now he has a big platform to mislead many others at the NYT.

    This GIGO = Garbage In, Garbage Out mistake should really be pointed out to Nate.

    Congressional elections have consequences!
