Is It Time to Panic Yet?


Uh oh. A couple of days ago Sam Wang said Hillary Clinton still had a 90 percent chance of winning. Today he says it’s either 77 percent or 86 percent, depending on whether you’re a Bayesian or a Driftian. “For Democrats, it is a good thing that the election is not today,” he says ominously.

I still wouldn’t panic over this, but your mileage may vary. If you’re the panicky sort, now’s your chance.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
