Chaotic

Over the past month, this graph has shown completely chaotic behavior.

[http://www.electoral-vote.com/]

I interpret it as having major trends, but nothing that is meaningul on the week timescale.

Doesn't the last month look like this chatoic data?

[logistic]

This graph is from the logistic equation:

#!/usr/bin/perl
$x=0.5;
foreach $n (0..600){
    $x = $x*(1-$x)*3.8;
    if ( $n % 11 == 0) {
        print "$n $x \n" if ($n>200); }
}
