Dr Sam Wang, a polling expert who said he would eat a bug if Donald Trump won more than 240 electoral votes during Tuesday’s election has kept to his words.
Wang, a Princeton University professor, feasted on crickets in honey on Saturday morning to settle the bet following Trump’s shocking election victory.
The data scientist was reminded of his wager while discussing the election and why predictions went wrong with host Michael Smerconish on CNN’s ‘Smerconish’.
Back on October 19, Wang had tweeted: ‘It’s totally over. If Trump wins more than 240 electoral votes, I will eat a bug.’ President-elect Trump ended winning the election after capturing Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes, putting him over the 270 threshold needed to win.
In total Trump had 290 electoral votes while Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had 228. Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka also vowed to rip his green card apart should Donald Trump win the US Presidential elections, but he is yet to honour his words, but instead with a long missive trying to play around the bush.
