If I were in charge during election season…

November 2nd, 2006

…I would outlaw polling.

Our government is supposed to be determined by votes, viagra canada buy not “polls.”

Plus, viagra remedy polling just adds to the whole “horse race” aspect of elections.

Aren’t we supposed to be figuring out which positions we support instead of trying to figure out which candidate is more popular on a given day?

    What would the talking heads do during the day and night then? What would the pollsters do for a living?

    Ya gotta be more compassionate, man!

    “Ya gotta be more compassionate, man!”

    Really?

    Maybe we should do a poll on that. ;)

    Now that most Republicans are doing poorly in polls, I can understand why you would want to ban polling.

    Has nothing to do with that, Tim.

    I’ve always hated polling.

    I think it supresses voter turnout. And I think it makes actually “voting” seem less important to everyone. After all, if we all already know Arnold is going to win by 16 points why bother having an election?

    And finally, it reinforces one of the least flattering aspects of humanity…the herd instinct.

    But, without polling, how would the candidates be able to fine tune their pandering?

    Another great reason to get rid of polling!

    Can you imagine what the world would be like if politicians had to actually state what they believed instead of “believing in” whatever the polls told them to?
