Poll guru eats his words
A polling expert in the US who said he would eat a bug if Donald Trump got more than 240 electoral votes has followed through on his promise. Sam Wang, of the Princeton Election Consortium, made good on his Twitter word on CNN. He ate from a can of gourmet-style crickets and added in some honey. He said John the Baptist ate locusts and honey in the wilderness, and he considers himself to be in the wilderness as well. Wang said on the consortium’s website that polls failed, but that his analysis “amplified” that failure. He apologised for “underestimating the possibility” of Trump winning.
