I will kindly ask that the posting of election polls please stop (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x9173541)

There are too many polls. Polling is a scumbag industry, about as reputable as the private health insurance industry.

It's all very mentally taxing.

I am asking nicely that it please stop.

Why, because you "just simply have to" click every freaking thread? :rolleyes:

Wouldn't it be just as easy to ignore those threads :confused:

9. My comment was not meant to insult you, but is an observation of how polls are treated here.

If it doesn't agree with what most here believe, then the poll, any poll, is dismissed and declared not to be valid.

In the same way it appears that a Democrat cannot ever actually lose an election. If the Dem loses, then somehow the election was rigged or stolen.

:D so whom does this mole belong to??

I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but something tells me that they weren't so resistant to polls in '06 and '08.

I'm guessing he won't want to see this then. (http://hotair.com/archives/2010/09/22/poll-surprise-of-the-day-barney-frank-in-trouble/)
The Sean Bielat campaign has declared themselves within reach of unseating Barney Frank in Massachusetts’ 4th CD, one of the presumed safest districts for Democrats in the nation. The poll, conducted for the campaign by OnMessage, shows Frank falling below the 50% mark despite the D+14 composition of his constituency. Bielat comes within nine points, even though the poll shows that he still badly trails in name recognition.

The memo from the pollster explains that Bielat could shock the world on November 2nd:

The ballot is very encouraging and shows Bielat at 38%, Frank at 48% and 13% undecided.

If that would actually happen on November 2nd, you'll see a lot of this going on at the DUmp:
