Poll Addicts Go Cold Turkey

Remember the infamous ‘Heidi Bowl’ of 1968? When football fans went into seizures in their living rooms as the last crucial seconds of the historic Raiders vs Jets game were cut off for a special presentation of ‘Heidi’. Well, not to compare a devastating hurricane to a missed football game, but I can feel the pain of information withdrawal.
Gallup poll suspended after Hurricane Sandy…

“As a pollster right now I couldn’t poll from Virginia up to New Hampshire, it would be a total blackout,” he said. “All of New England is off the board, so you’re going into this last weekend basically not knowing,” he said.

Problems caused by Sandy add more uncertainty to polls that have already vexed voters and campaign insiders with their seemingly contradictory signals.

As they say, polls don’t win elections and blogging is not campaigning. Time to get active and get out the vote.
