Not like anyone cares, but I'll clarify my point on polling. There isn't anything inherently wrong with polling or sampling. My beef is more with how they are conducted and how they are used to justify points. I differentiate sampling a small population to determine the average height of adult males vs who will win the general election. While both might represent what they seek, there are no variables to change the former in a short amount of time.
I thought you didn't believe in statistics?
Don't you dare try to make my signature a liar.
You would be a fool not to have a bias against statistics. Having a bias and not believing in statistics are not one AND
the same. Ok, I just wanted to say that, but it's true. I recently have not seen anyone talk about polls and not dismiss other polls. Every time a poll is presented that contradicts their poll, they "dig deeper" into the poll and come up with numerous flaws on why the other poll is inaccurate and theirs is right.
If you sit back and take every poll (especially political ones) at face value, then you're simply a fool. There's no other way to put it. So, yes, I'm biased against statistics. I'm not sure how you think that's funny. It' called reality. If you've ever done any scholastic research, you would definitely understand it more.
