  •  "They Suck at Polling" won't hurt them at all (0+ / 0-)

    Money so corrupts the political process and the media, and it affects pollsters just like the rest of it.

    Polling is just one more player in the grab bag of pundits, think tanks, "news", and others. As revenue generators rather than truth seekers, the need they are fulfilling only vaguely resembles the pretense they project.

    Rasmussen, Gallop, Mason Dixon look stupid today. But only today. Tomorrow, they'll return to meeting the need they always have; which is to sell a narrative that certain monied interests are willing to invest in.

    They'll still make money. So nothing will change.

    If an asteroid was hurtling toward Earth, Republicans would refuse to consider any plan that didn't start with tax breaks for the rich.

      for 2014 and 2016.

      Yes the bad actor pollsters will be back and we will be back too with institutional memory about what happened in 2012.
