Why I like this political blog

I'm not intrinsically interested in politics as a process, though I care a great deal about things controlled at least in part by politicians (environmental laws, women's rights, access to health care--paint me socially liberal). Consequently I tend to only pay much attention to politics as an election nears to be an informed voter. Deep down I know I'd be better off paying more recently I started reading a couple of political blogs.

FiveThirtyEight has been a good choice for me, as shown by the title of this post: Hooray! The Second Derivative of the Unemployment Rate Improved!.
