    Polls only poll those willing to be polled.

    Even research on polling relies on those willing to be researched. Do those unwilling to be polled or researched not vote? Or vote in such insufficient numbers that their lack of cooperation is irrelevant.

    Why yes, sometimes that is true -- like in midterms.

    But not in the Presidential.

    A simple example: the difference between polling likely voters, registered voters and QUALIFIED voters. (You don't hear that one very much, do you? Ever wonder WHY?)

    I rest my case.
