Enough with the effin polls!

It is July, 2019. Do we really need daily polls?

I just turned off Lawrence which I seldom do, but spending time on statistical separations is a waste of our time!

Once a week updates seem adequate at this far off date. These polls are far from accurate and impact the fundraising of many hopefuls.

Interviews and on the trail reports are of course essential.

Just screw the polls as an important lead!

14. I'm serious and I'm not

 

It's not that I want hourly polls exactly, but I want to be able to check poll numbers whenever the mood strikes me and see very recent numbers.

Reliable numbers, of course.

11. The media wants a neck and neck race

 

They always do. While Lawence was highlighting the 5 point margin of error he says if Biden's number was actually 3 points lower and Warren's number is actually 3 points higher, we have a statistical tie. I was saying to myself, if Biden's number is actually 3 points higher and Warren's is actually 3 points liwer, then Joe is still running away with.
That being said, I won't take any poll seriously until after Christmas.

12. I'll start paying attention to polls...

 

after our democratic candidate is selected. Right now it's just a popularity contest on DU and elsewhere. I'll do anything I can to get any democrat elected and bounce Trump's criminal, fat, wrinkled ass down the highway, and eventually imprisoned.

15. "hese polls are far from accurate"

 

What makes you think that? Their overal consistency and gradual changes make me think they are providing a pretty good snapshot.

I think your comment about accuracy, without any measure to back you up, is completely unfounded.
