6. Because You Are Supposed To Compare Polls Over Time By The Same Pollster

But at the end of the day PPP is a Democratic Lite version of Rasmussen, a robocaller who because of the low expense of robocalling can churn out scores of polls.

7. It's all about selling advertisement and gaining sponsors

Often in sports a superior team plays down to competition and sometimes the refineries help the game go there. Sometimes weathermen also try forecast things that never happen or some type of repairman giving you a worst case scenario that mostly never happens. It's all about projections and making them feel important in their jobs or business'. Give them the rope they want, if they are up to no good you will eventually find them tied up in knots while still issuing their denials
