Election 2020: can the Democrats win the Senate? | The Economist

In the US 2020 election the battle to control of the Senate is almost as important as the race for the White House, because control of Congress can make or break a presidency. The Economist has created a new statistical model to predict who will win. Read more here: https://econ.st/3iTm4ch

  1. I hate that we can't trust what they are saying. They have been lying about the polls. They say Biden is ahead, yet, no one goes to hear him speak. They say Trump is losing, yet, thousands show up to hear him speak. When you see with your eyes what is happening and all they do is tell you the opposite of what you see then you know they are lying.

  2. How much do Teachers pensions invest in @lockheedmartin bombs dropped on schoolbuses? @CALSTRS and ohio pensions funds have largest shares but cant find texas and flroida

  3. Gosh, anyone remember when the Economist was pro capitalism? Sad so many have been dumbed down by public education. Thing about models kiddo people adapt and the factors not factored in models may turn out to be more important than the factors being input..

  4. If he blocks Biden like he blocked Obama, why was it racist to block Obama which was the mainstream media’s take on it?

    Sometimes, I think the Media is as corrupt as the politicians and are all Democrats. Even the Fox guy in the debates is a Democrat, FOX the far right channel! How does this get past so many people? Goebbels propaganda and Trotsky’s politics seam to have been assumed to be the way the national media want to go…scary!

  5. The renowned crypto analyst, “Credible Crypto” has joined other experts who predict a massive increase in the price of XRP since yesterday. The technical analyst explained in a series of tweets to his 68,000 followers that XRP could rise to between 20 and 30 USD in the next bull run in the crypto market due to its fundamentals. However, Credible Crypto dismissed prices beyond that as unrealistic…

    Keep it real. XRP price IS NOT “pre-determined.” XRP IS NOT “backed by gold”. XRP WILL NOT reach the prices BTC has ($10,000+). XRP will NOT replace the dollar. But it doesn’t need to do ANY of these things to make you and me life changing money over the next 3 years.
    I don’t know about the long term, but look for $20-$30 over the next bull run (2-3 years).

    Credible Crypto argues that a price close to $10,000 is not realistic, as XRP would have to reach a market capitalization of $1,000,000,000,000,000 for that to happen. “This is not happening”, the analyst says. In addition, it is “complete nonsense to try to compare the market capitalization of a cryptocurrency with an unrelated asset”.

    Thus, XRP could not be compared with “the market capitalization of Apple or Amazon”. At the same time, he said, it was “no nonsense to compare it with other related assets in the crypto space”. Ultimately, however, according to the analyst, XRP, like any other cryptocurrency, is just “a moonshot”:

    If it ends up seeing real-world usage and adoption, then there is value in holding it, plain and simple. […] Literally, the entire crypto space right now is to some extent a speculative moonshot? XRP has more usage, adoption, and demand than most, which makes it a solid bet. That’s all any coin in the space is right now though- a bet.

    As the analyst explained, the token issued by Ripple has much greater potential and is now gaining much greater acceptance than other cryptocurrencies. Nonetheless, Credible Crypto expects the next bull run to be as speculative as the previous two. One of the biggest beneficiaries could be XRP, when the “real use cases” are revealed..
