Polls, aren't we totally sick of polls, one day we have a poll showing one thing, another day a slightly different result, do we need to be continually bombarded by polls.
A few thousand people according to the pollsters can dictate what the whole of the electorate in Australia is thinking on any given day and the electorate believes them.
Do they really think that the populace lay awake every night thinking about what the next poll will tell us, not bloody likely mate.
The thirst for stories by the newspapers has created a thriving industry, there are pollsters everywhere, they are telling us how we will vote, what we will like to eat, which movie will be popular and polls that tell us which treatment is popular for illness.
They take a poll on everything imaginable and then present it to us as fact--guess what, we have been brainwashed by this hogwash for so long, we now we believe it!
The press who began this business are now compelled to give us a new story every day, they created a monster and now any poll published by any supposed expert that pops up is a story.
Dumbing down is the name of the game, while they continue to print this garbage the average joe who is not on a pollsters contact list has no chance to give an opinion.
We no longer have to think, it done for us, do we have to weigh the facts, no, we needn't bother with such things anymore, facts given to us just muddy the water, so they say.
The pollsters can do all this for us, and if the polls aren't enough we can get the real story from the shock jocks.
