    Old dino remembers what vinyl records would sometimes do~~
    "During 2016, all polls said Clinton would win--skip!--Clinton would win--skip!--Clinton would win--skip--! Clinton would win--skip--Cackles would--"
    ~~until you raised the needle.
    Me dino was so sure Clinton would win, that when she said, "My dream is open borders," that scared me into buying a 9mm carbine that I named "The Evil Hag."
    Despite all that, it was about a week before I voted that I developed a big gut feeling that Cackles the Evil Hag would not win.
    Nevertheless, I was still relieved when her supporters were wailing at the sky and throwing hissy fits on TV.
    This time I haven't even bought ammo since the election cranked up.

    I'm checking premises on polls.
    1) Large sample size (Nope.)
    2) All errors are random (Nope)

    Short answer?...NO; But as to the reason people may be refusing might be the plethora of telemarketing calls, texts and emails in the past 5/10 years. It's come to a head, never mind the last Presidential Election where the polls were so far off it was actually funny.
    Sprinkle in a dose of cultural out-casting, chastisements and outright getting Fired!

    Memes up...hope you like this one too.

    I pay no attention whatsoever to Polls. I notice we are having 'record' turnouts in voting and I can't accept they are voting for Socialists (Communists).

    I almost didn't listen to this....who has an extra 41 minutes to sit around and listen to people run their mouths??? .....so glad I did! In fact, it was SO good I listened to it twice, and shared with another group of local conservatives I am in.

    Thank you so much for this. I really needed to hear this today.

    This is one of the most informative discussions I have ever had the pleasure of watching. I already had little confidence in polls, but now I know without a doubt that they are laughably unreliable. Thank you so very much for sharing this with us.
