I cannot, in my lifetime, recall a time when the polls were as all over the place, and as contradictory, as they have been during the campaign.
It is, frankly, impossible that they can all be accurate, or even close to it. I think what we are seeing is the apotheosis of gimmicked polls as political propaganda. Which is a real shame, because it simply removes yet another tool that could help the average observer to figure out what is actually going on. You can’t trust the “analysis,” you can’t trust the “objective, unbiased reporting,” and now you can’t even trust the “accurate measuring methods.”
A free and healthy democracy cannot function when it has no way to determine reality. We have our corrupt, degenerate, dangerous mass media to thank for this situation. The solution is simple: Destroy them. Don’t read them, buy them, or support them in any way. As somebody else said, “Let them die. I’ll dance on their graves.”
Whatever replaces our current media cannot possibly be any worse, and most likely will be better. More transparent, at least.
It would be great after the election to have a mass boycott of their advertisers...
