You are so right, this cartoon is a complete waste of time!
Statistics work in medicine, science, engineering, hedge funds, etc … almost as though somebody was tampering with the data in elections.
Wow, another one I agree with Tom on. As most sane people hang up and don’t answer polls, they’re only picking up a small fraction of the available population an are inherently unreliable.
Hmmm.. If there were no polls, something else would have to step in to fill a vacuum. I think that “Praying to Idols” is already in use, with mixed results.
Missing in that chart is the Russian and foreign governments influence.
Polls can have a negative impact on voting . If a poll shows a big lead for a certain candidate , whether or not favored by you , what would be your incentive to get your butt in a line to cast a vote that in your mind isn’t going to make one iota of a difference anyway ?
I wish they were a complete waste of time…that implies they are relatively benign. But they are too often used as a device to manipulate the outcome
We have caller ID, and I did pick up the phone when we received a call from Gallup. However, once they discovered we were both over 65, we got a pleasant Thank You for Your Time, and have never been contacted again.
Remember, kiddies… polls are stupid, unless they agree with your preconceived world view, in which case they are completely accurate.
Uh-oh. Polls must be returning results unfavorable to Trump Disciples like Stiglich.
And it’s a real shame how people in office and those running for office — and their superPACs — continue to spend so much time and money conducting those useless polls and analyzing the results.
And Republicans conducted 17 Congressional hearings on Benghazi specifically to negatively affect Hillary’s…
Stiglich is again showing off the Trump Disciple analysis skills.
This was accidentally mislabeled. It is actual a pie chart of a Stiglich Cartoons,,,
Thank you Tom! I’d rather watch paint dry than listen/read another poll!
