28. polls are dead, why keep posting them, they are meaningless now
Fri Feb 3, 2017, 03:04 PM
Feb 2017

it seems they are just done to make us feel good and give us a false sense of security/superiority but they have no effect and totally failed us before the election. Why even post them. Polls don't vote. All a post like this does is titillate & distract. We've got incipient fascism in the White House & enablers of that fascism ruling Congress and the so-called opposition can barely block the worst of the appointments. What good is an unreliable poll going to do. Polls show a huge percentage believe all of Trump's fake news lies too. People just give knee-jerk reactions to pollsters but in the end the polls totally failed in the last election so WTH why
