Apollo 4 on column of fire

Josh Marshall bamboozling himself by reading meanings into poll numbers

It’s sad, really. The day before yesterday (I believe) he published graphs that, to my eyes, showed no change going back for I don’t know how long, because the wiggles all were about the same in scale and you could draw a flat line through them, whereas Marshall couldn’t decide whether the graphs showed no change or change twice a week. Indeed, he seemed emotionally pulled towards the latter, despite struggles to go with the former.
