• Summary

  • Look closely at almost anything and you’ll find data—lots of it. But when you push past the calculations, what are all those numbers really saying about who we are and what we believe? CNN’s Harry Enten is on a mission to find out. This season on Margins of Error, Harry teases out big ideas like what accents say about where we live, how much money it takes to be happy, and whether the U.S. should finally switch to the metric system.

    Studies show that, when picking between underdogs and the favorite, more people will side with the underdog. So, why are we so drawn to them? And it’s not just about sports and politics. It’s the human experience. Harry talks to his dear friend Neil Paine of FiveThirtyEight, underdog expert Nadav Goldschmied, and CNN's very own Coy Wire. As a former Buffalo Bills player, Coy knows a thing or two about being underestimated. We also do some serious analysis of who really deserves the title "America's Team." Spoiler: It's not the Cowboys or the Yankees. If you enjoy Margins of Error, CNN would love to hear from you.  Please visit: cnn.com/margins to take a brief survey.

    In spite of the rise in romance reality shows, it is possible romance is actually disappearing in real life. The statistics certainly paint a picture that love is on the decline, whether it’s less sex, more singles or fewer romantic gestures. So, WHO or WHAT is the culprit? Sherlock Harry is on the case and he even attends a Bridgerton Ball to investigate.

Interesting until the test…

The test was flawed. No deodorant? How about not shower for a few days? Not using deodorant ensured the test would fail.
