  • I personally don't listen to the polls...I hear everyone talking about them...but to me it's like the weatherman telling me there is a chance of rain for tomorrow and the rain never comes....I will wait until the elections are over and all votes counted to see which candidate wins....polls don't really matter in the scheme of things. If you remember from the last election they kept saying that Kerry was ahead in the polls, but he obviously ended up not becoming president?

  • kerry was ahead in the EXIT polls - those are people that are leaving the voting booth. He never led once in the AP/WSJ/NYT polls.

    I look at all of the polls, and right now, all 3 say something different.

  • You don't. They randomly select people to call.

  • www.fivethirtyeight.com is the BEST PLACE to get polling information. It's already a sealed deal.

  • Also, you can go to GOOGLE MAPS and click on the US to see which state is going to which candidate, and all 8 major news stations are a part of it ,you can click on whichever one you trust most.
