  •  Rasmussen? Fox News? (0+ / 0-)

    I don't know if you consider these pollsters reputable, but it's clear that's what they were doing.

    Maybe I'm just a cynic, but I think these tactics bled over into the polling done by pollsters who were otherwise normally reputable.

    What made Nate Silver such a genius?  I think it had much to do with his removal of bias.  Certainly, having the insight to know what indicating questions to ask is helpful, but one possible could out-think oneself.  

    I believe that in this world, really since 1980, integrity has increasingly taken a back seat to profit - which seems to a paradoxical effect in the aggregate.

    Are there no prisons? No workhouses?
