2020 Presidential Election

Survey Results

Classic polling systems are often biased and inherently flawed. Our model uses a mathematical concept called Game Theory to measure public sentiment about who Americans would like to see in the Office of President. And it was one of the few to accurately predict the 2016 Presidential Election. Check out the results and simulate the election now!
