33. because the facts say differently when you average polls together

I remember this kind of loose talk when the Recall happened in Wisconsin. Polls clearly showed that Walker would win, and he did. On DU, there was a great ignoring of this fact, and an insistence that the polls were biased/wrong/rigged/etc.

RCP had the average of polls show Walker winning with a 6.7% margin, he ran a 6.8% margin.

If our polls are rigged, then our elections are rigged as well. If our elections are rigged...

Well if our elections are rigged then why the hell are we sitting here in DU, or phone banking, or registering voters, or ANYTHING else other than taking to the streets to resist, by whatever means are available, the death of our democracy?

Is that what you are recommending? I don't necessarily disagree, I just want to know if I am understanding you clearly?
