Americans will go to the polls on November 6 and decide who will control the House and Senate.
In 2016 conventional wisdom took a beating when Donald Trump was elected president and the Senate remained under Republican control. Conventional wisdom is still reeling.
Using traditional polling and other measures to predict election outcomes, reports of a Democratic “blue wave” have made headlines for months. However, similar methods were used in 2016 that confidently predicted the election of Hillary Clinton.
Today, reports tend to see Republicans retaining control of the Senate and even gaining seats but still probably losing control of the House.
In short, the unreliability of polling, reporting and predictions illustrate why we have actual elections to determine results.
