    too close to reality for comfort.
    Mr. Tobacco, Senator Jesse Helms once said that he’d never won a poll but never lost an election.
    I don’t mind the polls being messed with nearly as much as the vote being tampered with.

    Trouble with polls is that the manner in which the questions are asked can influence the answer.

    Speaking of facts, let’s see a list of some of the “many polling places with over 100% of the people voting,” along with your sources for that info.

    I heard about it with Bush and Gore in florida a lot, I also heard about it in the past with democrats voting with dead people, so it wasn’t new to Obama.

    I propose we start an organization called LTAP. It stands for Lie to a Pollster. Its goal is to increase the error rate of polls from 3 percent + or – to about 50 percent + or minus. If it is successful, the politicians would have to give their own opinions instead of parroting back to us what they think we want to hear.

    Anyone who thinks much of any (much less all) opposition to Obama has to do with racism is living in a dream world.

    You obviously don’t live in or near Chicago where, historically, the dead have come back to life to vote Democrat and where magically, enough votes came in for Kennedy in ‘60 to put him over the top to defeat Nixon, and where a Daley (“Boss” and “Son of Boss”) has been a mayor for a total of 43 years and where Rahm Emmanuel was improbably found to be a resident after all in order to fill Daley, Jr.’s shoes.

    Oh, and what about that one lady in Ohio who BRAGGED about being able to vote several times for Obama….?

    Or the New Black Panther Party intimidating voters in Philadelphia…?

    Yup, try to tell me there isn’t voter fraud perped by Dems and those who support a socialist/marxist agenda and I will gladly sell you some oceanfront property in Nebraska and an admiralty in their navy.

    Obama is half White – I keep reminding people, since they tend to forget that…..Obama seems to have forgotten, too.

    Same thing with all statistics. In class we were cautioned to try and make our conditions as non-prejudiced as possible, and it was hard.
    My teacher talked about a time when he was on an analyses team that developed a survey. He went to the latest census report and calculated the information from it, a far more authoritative source. The team went with their survey information because it was more complimentary to their cause. If you don’t know the source of the data, surveys are worthless.

    In the Commonwealth of Virginia (US) polls recently, a huge number of the polled said that they hated both Republican and Democratic candidates, but that they weren’t aware of a 3rd choice. They didn’t know about the next biggest candidate because the news media made the same observation but never reported anything about the 3rd biggest (Libertarian) candidate. Which is why the pollsters never mentioned him or his meaningful positions and the big party candidates never had to discuss, or do, anything meaningful.

    I’ve often thought that it would be interesting if the debate questioners just asked the same question over and over again until the debaters really answered the question. Or required yes or no answers occasionally.

    His member page says he’s been a member since 7/26/13; but (as of this) only 29 comments. Less than one per day seems low to me; somebody (GoComics?) must be deleting some.

    “Lie to a Pollster?” Haven’t you heard? that’s the national sport here in Canada. Far more popular than hockey or lacrosse!
