The #accuracy of the #polls. They are #worthless and almost #meaningless. Their #bombardment starts 5 minutes after an election is over and they do not let up until the next election is held and then start all over again. There #harassment is #constant.
How is it that these places make big money, BUTT never have to get it right?? What a gig they have.

With all of the polling places, does anyone really pay attention to all of the #BUM-SCOOP they pass out every hour on the hour?? To me they are meaningless.
On Monday morning at 0800, Bernie is up by 10 points – by 0900 Bernie is #losing by 20 points, and so on an so on.
#Pollsters are like the weather men in these following cities; they are never right.

If they just gave us a little breathing room in between elections, they may be more #tolerable. I think I will have the pollsters take a poll on that.
Right now @ 0653 Sunday morning, the pollsters have Bernie beating the competition. #Guaranteed, by 1200 hrs, he will be down by 6.
Side note: if Bern is the #best the #opposition has to offer:
Message to PDT: #Donny, you don’t worry about cleaning out the closets.
