Track the Princeton Election Consortium's Meta-Analysis
This extension puts an icon in your browser that, when clicked, will show you the up-to-the-minute status of the election(s) being tracked by Dr. Sam Wang's Princeton Election Consortium Meta-Analysis:
- When the meta analysis was last updated
- Projected Democratic and Republican totals (votes, Senate seats, etc)
- Popular Vote Meta margin
- Percent chance of a Democratic victory (by "Random Drift" and "Baysean" models)
- Current graphic aids, which may include meta-analysis history for the campaign, an electoral map, and win scenario histogram.
Additionally, the extension will (every 2 hours) automatically refresh itself and display the current Meta Margin over the icon, so you don't even need to click to know if the Meta Margin has changed!
