Although ...

I said "statistics don't predict" and that is technically accurate (I'm less congenial this AM, LOL.)

For example, let's consider the old Madison Avenue geehaw "4 out of 5 dentists recommend Trident gum."

Why, that's statistically overwhelming, no? 4 out of 5 is 80%, right?

Can you imagine what a politician could do with an "approval rating" of 80%?

The problem with that is, of course, that it's complete and utter BS based on the way the question was asked. What dentists actually said was the choice for sugarless gum was much better than sugary gum.

It just so happened at the time that Trident was the only major brand that was sugarless.

Like our old buddy Mark Twain reminded us: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics." (He was quoting Disraeli.)

The only Presidential poll worth looking at had Trump winning going into the election.

Crazy year.

Now we love Putin and KJU. WOO-HOO dictators and oppressive regimes!

WOO-HOO to a lack of common decency (from Trump, his supporters, and his detractors) and decorum.

Dogs and cats, living together, mass hysteria!
