Love the intelligent discussions

The members of Five Thirty-eight carry out very nuanced discussions about the state of the race. I feel like someone sitting at the table with them, following their viewpoints as to what are the chances of this or that. I am always absorbed.

Declining Quality

Leave it to the unbearable DNC spokesperson Clare Malone to dedicate an entire article and podcast to whining about how the GOP is nothing but a racist organization. The “woke” urban virtue signaling of this podcast has ruined a once decent publication.
