So the buzz today is all about an irrational number. Let’s throw a few more more irrational numbers in honor of Pi. How about 41-38? “Jason Carter, a Democratic state senator from Atlanta and grandson of Georgia’s only president, is slightly ahead of Deal, 41 percent to 38 percent.” Wow, that sounds very strange. Senator Carter hasn’t done any advertising yet, mostly because the general election is still 8 months away. How could he possibly be tied with an incumbent Governor two months before the primary? Here’s how:
“The online survey of 486 voters was conducted Sunday and Monday by InsiderAdvantage with OpinionSavvy on behalf of Morris News and WAGA-TV in Atlanta. It showed 21 percent remain undecided.” (emphasis added.)
You know who wins online polls? Ron Paul, the President of Unicornville, that’s who. I welcome any attempts to prove me wrong in the comments section, but unless and until somebody does, online polls aren’t real polls any more than those “Angry Birds” are real birds.
