On Tuesday, the needle will be back for its biggest showing since 2016—but not without some rethinking. “We had many, many discussions,” said Kahn, who noted that he, executive editor Dean Baquet, and the political editors “all agreed that aggregating polls and then coming out with what looks like a New York Times-endorsed summary, and then placing that too prominently on the home page”—and making that probability the starting point for the needle—“was not the right thing to do, so we’re not going to repeat that.”
