It will likely be months until pollsters can study this year’s misses thoroughly (a comprehensive study came roughly six months after the 2016 election). However, for now, pollsters have some educated guesses about what may have thrown polls off.
In a later episode, Emily goes so far as to directly insult Lou Malnati’s, the inarguable apex of deep dish pizza in the city of Chicago, suggesting that Darren Star and Netflix not only hate Chicago, but they want to watch its institutions burn.
Studios so far are declining to reveal their PVOD earnings, save for the lone case of Universal and Trolls World Tour. Trolls cost $19.99 for a 48-hour rental, which has quickly become an industry standard. While this lack of disclosure prevents analysts from judging a film’s standing, it seems crystal clear that big tentpoles with a budget of $100 million-plus need a theatrical release to be financially viable — which is why almost every mega-event pic slated for 2020 has been delayed for theatrical release. The reach of the global box office in terms of merchandising, establishing franchises and generating billions in ticket sales cannot be replicated.
This album is incredible on a number of levels. The songs are some of Springsteen’s best in 20 years, the quick, unrehearsed nature of recording makes the E Street Band sound more vital than a dozen guys their age have any right to, and Max Weinberg’s snare drum continues to be the world’s leading source of renewable energy.

The Chicks, formerly known as the Dixie Chicks, are the best-selling female band of all time in the U.S. But they may be known just as much for a comment lead singer Natalie Maines made during the lead-up to the Iraq War — and the outcry that followed, in which the group was virtually banned from country radio. Fourteen years after their last album, the Chicks are back
In all, 137 million Americans own stock, either directly or through an investment fund — that’s 15 million more people than voted in the last national election. We can use that position as shareholders to push companies to our long-term interests and our deeper values.
It’s a good notion, but it overlooks the fact that most stock ownership outside the top 10% of the nation’s wealthiest citizens, is via 401(k) accounts that individuals don’t exactly have a lot of control over.
In a striking new sign of the broader role corporations are shouldering in society, Business Roundtable — the CEOs of America’s biggest companies — today announced a raft of initiatives “to advance racial equity and justice.”
Well, to be fair, they’ve only known this was a problem and talked about fixing it for like 40 or 50 years. Let’s see if this turns out like their pledge to value employees and customers instead of just shareholders, though.
