"If you wrote out a list of the most important factors in the 2016 election, I'm not sure that Russian social media memes would be among the top 100. The scale was quite small and there's not much evidence that they were effective."

"What fraction of overall social media impressions on the 2016 election were generated by Russian troll farms? 0.1%? I'm not sure what the answer is, but suspect it's low, and it says something that none of the reports that hype up the importance of them address that question."

The answer couldn’t have been that the Democrats nominated a horrible old harridan to run against the Great Orange One.

Opinion pieces on Rep/Con media & websites are the only truth.

Yes, but Nate strongly predicted that the old harridan would win.

Trump was destined to win. His crowds were always far larger. Clinton won a lot of votes by default but very few we're genuinely excited about her
