America Doesn’t Have Enough ‘Morons’ to Elect Trump, Baseball Stats Guru Says
The man who revolutionized baseball with statistical analysis says there just aren't enough morons in the country to elect Donald Trump.
Bill James, in a blog post, says the numbers won’t work for Trump in a two-person race. James is the inventor of what’s called sabermetrics, or the use of advanced data to analyze baseball. “When you divide the public in two and then divide the voters in one of those halves among five candidates or more, a candidate can win by dominating the moron vote because it only takes about one-seventh of the total population to take the ‘lead’ under those circumstances. But when you’re talking about needing 51% of the WHOLE population, rather than needing 30% of half of the population, you run out of morons,” he said.
