Exit polls and statistics

Iowahawk is best known as a satirist but has an excellent piece on the pitfalls of polling.

Pew and Zogby et al. would have you believe that something as contentious and personal as politics can be controlled by proper application of systemic polling. A sentiment I do not share. We have a few days left. We're in the home stretch but the most interesting part will be the post mortem on polls. People have short memories. I remember polling data from the last two elections used as "proof" that Karl Rove/Diebold/GOP/Bilderbergers stole the election.

I saw somewhere today where people may have to start looking for new jobs once the polls prove that the liberal illuminati are going to be defeated tomorrow. They can always share in the wealth with the other socialist want-to-bes.
