Love the show

I learn endlessly and painlessly by listening to 538. I enjoy the mixture of nerdiness and humor. BTW, when I spotted Fivey in Lake Champlain he was wearing a speedo if that helps your thought process.
Keep up the good work and thank you so much!

Arrogant Flawed Deceptive Just Plain Wrong!

Lousy averages, bad polling, misinformation, partisan data collection. Do NOT put any credence in this podcast. They’re wrong. Always wrong. Prior elections and current. Don’t believe what they say. Please trust my eval. Zero stars more honest.
