U.S. ELECTION WEEK REVIEW and PREDICTION: A Look Back at our 2016 Analysis

WORDPLAY POST #141: REMINISCENCE and PREDICTION


SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, March 2016, revised February, 2017.
SONGLINK: On "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE", post #122, a parody-song "Election-Race Anagrams" deals with the distribution of anagrams based on the words R-E-P-U-B-L-I-C-A-N-S and D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-S.
 As shown below, a non-biased assessment using an automatic anagram generator suggests that Republicans would have a yu-uge advantage over Democrats in a contest based on the number of anagrams; however, the generation of plausible anagrammatic locales incorporating postal codes is a more complex matter, and results in a tighter 'race' than would otherwise be expected. A conspiracy theorist might note that the word 'ruble' is embedded in the word "REPUBLICANS", but the editor does not wish to give any credence to such a possibility. There is however some relation between anagrams derived and party leanings, policy and support that is shown in the 2nd slide.
  This material was developed before the election of November 2016, with the initial hope that it might be helpful in predicting election results. Many of the factors in the analysis have remained unchanged today in 2018, although there are some new twists. Many of the same factors contribute to today's analysis, including the mysterious role of the word 'ruble'.
