      This whole polling business is such a scam.  Reminds me of what I have read about the soothsaying business in antiquity.  The only difference is that we no longer look at animal guts to see the future.  Something has to be done about this.  I just don't know what.  It comes down to the internet and the gutting of the newsrooms.  Can you imagine the major networks and newspapers being swayed by polling done by people and organizations with these kind of questions.  RCP is just as bad.  They have demonstrated themselves to be totally biased.  Someone has to set up a site which has no bias and only reports reputable polling results.  

      •  Simple averages of the polls are quite accurate (2+ / 0-)
