This Polling Expert Made a Disgusting Bet on Trump-Clinton. Here’s What Happened When He Lost

You can’t fault Sam Wang. Virtually every scientific poll in America had Hillary Clinton knocking off Donald Trump. It seemed so improbable, in fact, that Wang made a bet with CNN. If Donald Trump got more than 240 electoral votes, Wang would eat a bug. 

Wang’s wager was so absurd that you could have excused him for not following through with it. But to his credit, and to our disgust, he’s a man of his word. Kudos to the professor for not backing down. We at AAN salute you!
