    538 has been a bit of a mess this cycle. I've been reading Sam Wang's blog at the Princeton Election Consortium. His model has been far more stable. The Huffington Post's model seems more stable too.

    I'm just not buying a jump that big over 2 state polls...

    I'm watching Trump speak, which I do rarely for obvious reasons, and the things he says are so rambling and bizarre.

    I'm fairly certain he's using a teleprompter which means that someone actually wrote this which is just odd because its literally all over the place to the point of being almost incoherent.

    He also has this bizarre habit of repeating a phrase multiple times as if the people listening to him are either hard of hearing or mentally slow. On top of the repetition, he is very monotone.

    Its just bizarre to me that someone this inarticulate and frankly, boring is getting so many people listening to him. Its even more bizarre because he's not really saying anything. They do stop to chant every once in a while...so maybe that's the entertainment?

    Maybe I've gotten too spoiled listening to the Obama's amazing speeches but I cannot imagine what is inspiring about listening to Trump.

    I've already voted for Clinton but I'll also be volunteering at the campaign office tomorrow with my kids.
