Fave election forecast map so far…
Gonna let my 23-year-old myopia show, but has there been any other election in American history* where the fate of women hang in such precarious, extreme state? We either get our first woman president, or we get a rapey dude who objectifies women, calls us pigs & apparently walks in on teenagers dressing. Hm.
FiveThirtyEight has a cool take on this, with “Women are defeating Donald Trump,” which includes a bunch of updated election forecasts based on the gender gap. Verrrrry interesting breakdown here.
If you want to dive deeper into the whole tangle of sex & politics that will come to a head in 26 days, you should definitely to yesterday’s episode of NYT’s “The Runup” podcast here.
Prefer non-election links? Here’s the Vox explainer on Honeycrisp apples you’ve been waiting for. Enjoy!
*(Would posit perhaps the elections of 1860 and 1864 would be good arguments, w/the whole women’s rights = human rights and vice versa thing).
