    Could be all the pollsters were Republican's do they didn't record all the democratic friendly answers... I'm sure it was a conspiracy.

    Speaking of polls, I have noticed something whenever elections come around.

    They will ask a question & give you the percentages. For example: if its a yes or no question, they will say:

    Yes - 56%
    No - 42%

    If my calculations are correct, the numbers don't add up to 100%. They won't ever post the other 2%. The numbers are reaaly bad when they are comparing candidates running against each other. They also never mention how many people were asked or responded to their poll. It just comes to show you how polls can be manipulated.

    If the media is going to use polling information, they should do it properly.
