Poll guru eats his words

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

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.
