Last week we suggested the outcome of the 2022 mid-term elections as a possible topic for tomorrow’s meeting. Among the many possible questions we might talk about are the following:
“Is this the end of Little Rico?” (Edward G. Robinson in Little Caesar (1931), but you know who I’m talking about.)
Which side won, if any?
Were the polls wrong again? If so, how and why?
Here are links to a few opinion pieces published over the last week or so that I found interesting:
A Republican opinion writer in the Washington Post about what he got wrong (https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/11/09/midterm-predictions-wrong-republican-underperform/) in his pre-election predictions (https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/11/07/midterm-elections-2022-prediction-house-senate-forecast/)
Another Republican opinion writer, this time in The New York Times, getting his pre-electon predictions wrong (https://www.nytimes.com/2022/11/06/opinion/politics/republican-midterms.html)
