The Problem with Political Predictions – Between the Scenes | The Daily Show

The Problem with Political Predictions – Between the Scenes | The Daily Show


– Do I have predictions for the midterms? I hate predicting things. I’ll be honest with you, I think a lot of America’s predicting I think hurts its elections because a lot of it seems
like a foregone conclusion because of the predictions. So, the prediction was
that Hillary would win, so I think a lot of
people were like, “Meh, what’s the point?” I feel like elections should have nothing. There should never be a prediction. I don’t think there should
be polls, to be honest. I think the polls should be something that is only accessible to campaigns so that they can run what they’re doing, but I don’t think we should
know who’s up and who’s down. Why does that affect your votes? Do you know what I mean? Why are you voting because
someone is winning or losing? That’s a weird… You should be voting because you believe in
somebody’s platform or not as opposed to saying how
you doing over there? How you doing? I’ll vote, are you winning? No, you don’t get my vote, no. Oh, you need it? Now you get my vote. Wait, you don’t need it? No. You know I mean? So, I can’t predict anything, nor do I wish to predict anything. I just hope the people come out and vote ’cause I think for a long time a lot of Americans were
just like, “Yeah, elections? Like, whatever. That’s, like, so tedious.” I remember when I would hear Americans talk about an election. It would be so crazy. People would just be like,
“Yeah, I mean, I’ll see. Like, who do you even vote for? It’s all the same, right?” That’s what people said
about Trump and Hillary. Remember that? Like, “To be honest, it’s all the same. Is it any different?” And now it’s like, “Oh,
yeah, it’s different.” (laughing) “Yeah, it is, like, totally different.” If it was Jurassic Park, it would basically be like
somebody going, “Okay, who do we want on the loose, the bad guy from Jurassic
Park or the dinosaurs?” And someones like, “It’s all the same.” And then the T-rex is like (yelling) and you’re like, “It’s not the same!” ‘Cause it is not the same. It genuinely is not the same.
(clapping) Obama spoiled a lot of people because of how competent he was. You know what I mean? Yeah, it’s like the guy was… It’s like imagine if America’s an airplane and Obama was a pilot and he was just one of those swaggy pilots that’s got everything
under control, you know? Just be like, “Ladies and
gentlemen, your pilot here, Obama. We’re at 20,000 feet heading up to 25. Should be good.” And then even when there’d
be a bump, he’d be like, “Now, folks, don’t worry about that. Just a bit of a bump.” And everyone was in the back like, you wanna check the safety briefing? And they’re like “No, I
don’t care, I don’t care.” And then the election
came and people were like, “Who’s gonna fly now?” And then some lady
stood up and she’s like, “I’ve been practicing my whole life.” And people are like, “A
lady can’t fly a plane! Meh, what if she has her period, meh! Meh! We need a man.” And some drunk dude stood up
and he’s like, “I can fly. I can fly this plane so
fast, so far, so fast.” And people were like, “Yeah,
that’s what this plane needs, someone who’s never flown before, yeah! That’s what I need.” And then he got in the cockpit
and then it’s just like… And then Obama was like,
“Alright, everybody, I’m out,” and he jumped out with his parachute. (laughing) And then the pilot on
the plane, he was like, “Alright, folks, time to shake things up.” And now everyone’s
like, “Where’s the exit? How does this work again?” (upbeat music)
