I hate polls

They are just a means of creating a desired outcome and changing public opinion.

Does anyone really believe the majority of Americans support the NSA spying on them? Any time the government does something controversial, the media puts out polls showing the majority approve. If you don't believe one poll, then you have to ignore all polls.

It is a losing cause, but I would support any effort to eliminate the use of polls in elections. Can you imagine the upheaval if we had an election with no MSM polls, and paper ballots counted in public view?

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
