1. I get that... it's strange though...  you could conceivably use it to get a random sample if, say, you polled people from Fredricton via their profile also.  Just a simple mind shift.

2. I leave everything.  I feel like privacy is exploited by those in power sometimes.  Like salaries...
Oh, I see what you're saying in the first point now. These Facebook samples aren't exactly random. That's why I was mentioning the selection bias thing (do the missing people have characteristics in common). However, they're pretty great at getting a targeted sample.

I think in general it may be hard to reach some MAGA supporters because I would assume some of the less **** ones don't use much technology.  Somebody's racist grampa probably isn't on facebook.  Mpst of my older conservative small-town relatives aren't on social media.  I think this may be a problem in political polling in general.  Younger more liberal types I assume are more connected, more often have a smartphone on them.

Most of the young Trumpsters who stormed the capital were young men.  I assume these are the types that patrol 4chan.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

You're right, but the sample that the did get already showed that the average supporter was white, Christian, and over 65. So adding those people in would just re-affirm the results or skew it even more that way, meaning it's under-estimating how old, white, rural, and Christian they are.

Yes they are.

Wrong.

I'm guessing the idiot will have similar luck with the various lawsuits/criminal charges he's due to deal with.

Trump being the petty vindictive sore loser that he is, I was hoping he'd demand a refund on his SCOTUS nominations and start sabotaging them.  Bummer it didn't pan out.

Are QAnon people extremely unintelligent or extremely insane?  I can't tell which.  Maybe both.

Based on what I've heard from them you'd be correct in concluding both.

He resurfaced just to spout some QAnon predictions, made a $100 bet with someone on MLW they would come true, lost, claimed to make payment, and then disappeared again. It was kind of sad.

Well, he is trying to get back on social media.... sort of...

From: https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/21/media/donald-trump-social-media-network/index.html
Jason Miller, a long-time adviser and spokesperson for Trump's 2020 campaign told Howard Kurtz on Fox's "MediaBuzz" that Trump will be "returning to social media in probably about two or three months." He added Trump's return will be with "his own platform" that will attract "tens of millions" of new users and "completely redefine the game."...Miller said during his appearance on Fox News that the former president has been approached by numerous companies and is in talks with teams about the new platform.

Pretty much textbook Trumpism... vague statements (e.g. about timeframes and the 'numerous companies'), excessive boasting about how popular he thinks it will be.

Because nothing says "success in technology" like being associated with an incompetent and corrupt businessman with a long string of business failures behind him.

It's time to start ignoring him.
