Blue wave, schmue wave, polls are almost always wrong

Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times

Don’t believe the polls. They’re short-sighted glimpses in time, inherently biased, influenced by the likes of how questions are worded, how questions are ordered, how many questions are asked, how many participants are reached — and a host of other factors. If that’s not scientifically shaky enough, then come the members of the media to report and interpret these numbers — members of the media whom we already know, from slews of surveys and studies, tend to vote Democratic and support progressive policies, even as they self-identify as independent.
