66. whoa: I actually AM arguing with a stone... cool...
This is not a math question.

In the real world, one can't get everyone to agree to work from TIA's list of Real poll results. See also my #63.

Moreover, it is not S.O.P. in meta-analysis to just add a bunch of surveys together to make One Big Survey. And even if one did, it would be pretty wishful to assume that sampling error is the only error source in the model.

But all this, and more, has been explained before.
