FiveThirty Eight’s FivethirtyEight.com editor Jonathan Klassman is joined by FiveThirty eight co-editor and editor-in-chief Michael A. Schoen.
FiveThirty 8.5.1: This week’s topic: FiveThirty8.5: The FiveThirty Seven model is on the decline.
The FiveThirtyEight model is the one everyone should be using.
The reason the FiveThirtySeven model is so bad is that it assumes that the entire world is basically the same.
And if we can see the world in this new light, we can better understand the problem.
This is the reason why FiveThirtyeight.com is a better option for you than FiveThirty.
It is also the reason the FourFourFive model is a worse choice for you, and why we recommend FiveThirty, which is what most of the world is using right now.
It’s that simple.
5.30: FiveThirds.com, one of the first and best FiveThirty websites, is down for maintenance.
I’m going to try to get back online soon.
Com is now down.
This article has been corrected.
5, 15.07.15: A reader pointed out that I wrote this in a podcast about FiveThirty seven, not FiveThirty-Eight.
I’ve been using FiveThirty for a while, so I’ve had a lot of time to think about this, and I think the article was more than a little misleading.
