  1. Why is this garbage even printed?
    What is the purpose of a poll (almost all of these polls) which measures on a macro level, completely inapplicable to the manner in which a president is elected?
    No value whatsoever, other than to remark on the coincidence of Romney’s controversial fundraising statement, and the number he predicted Obama would have, no matter what.
