Why aren't 'scientific polls' ever able to produce results that can be replicated?
If I showed you one study that said 30% of Americans smoked and another poll that said 20% of Americans smoked what would you think? I'm sure you wouldn't average the two together and say 25% of Americans smoked, you'd question the studies. But in politics these polls and surveys are not questioned.
I don't know how these polls are being skewed, but the variations between them strongly suggest they are. I can't buy into a 10% swing being part of a scientific study on a simple question like "who are you voting for". I think it's more rational to believe the polls are being mishandled. And this leads me to believe that the text message polls on Fox News are a more accurate representation of reality.
