From the article: “We have no control over sampling.”

I love the honesty. A recent thread here stated something like 91% of those sampled either hang up or refuse to answer questions. To me that represents a huge margin of error that could sway a poll one way or another for reasons the 91% will never give.

In other words, our pollsters have no control over sampling either and all polls are really a bunch of crap. To me if a given poll has 91% of those contacted refuse to give a opinion, then there is a 91% margin of error.

I think the coming landslide is going to amaze a lot of people. 1980 or 1972?
