For the Poll Watchers (not me)

I have never put much stock in polls. Except for the one poll that counts votes on election day. I have a problem with the other polls and view poll taking as an immensely flawed system. For example: who are the people being polled, who is polling them, how are the questions framed, where do the people live that are being polled...etc. etc..

Having said that, I got a poll for all you Poll Watchers who bestow great importance to polls. Here it is:

As you know, I DO like polls. They may not be 100% accurate, but they are a pretty good gauge of how things are going in the political world.

Obama's numbers may be "holding steady," but that's not saying much. When more than half the country thinks your politics and your policies STINK, that's not a prescription for success.

Well Sebe, Buddy, Just where does that leave Congress? Course they cheat via gerrymandering. But what can you do when you're out numbered?

It leaves Congress right where they are - as our elected representatives, no?

But speaking of polls - here's one I REALLY like:

As you can see, Darth Vader OUTPOLLS Hillary Clinton, which I suppose means that the GOP out to have Dick Cheney at the top of the ticket for 2016......

Of course. Poll infallibility is preposterous.

You have done well, my son. May the force be with you....or is it May the Force be against you. We need to take a poll.

Nobody said that polls are "infallible." But they are pretty good predictors, which are OCCASIONALLY inaccurate; however, they are accurate far more than they aren't.

We'll see what November brings and whether the polls leading up turn out to be right or wrong.

Again, I know you await that November date with more than a hint of delight as to what it may pertain to my political posture. I commented on another blog about how I would deal with whatever that date in the Fall may bring.

Zig Zag Zell is staying true to form. Yes, this is the man who gave the keynote speech for the Democratic Party Convention that nominated Bill Clinton, and also gave the keynote speech for George W. Bush at the Republican convention. However, on Sebe's behalf, I gratefully accept Zell's endorsement ...

America on Upswing
