Political Moneyball is a blog dedicated to several principles:

1. Our system of politics, even progressive politics, is broken.
2. Most of what passes as “conventional wisdom” is just plain false.
3. Political science is valid and is the best avenue to the truth in politics.
4. Most political insiders and activists are not political scientists, don’t understand it and rely on invalid ways of pursuing progressive goals.
5. It’s time to fix these problems.
