Happy Monday, y’all!
This bitch has never been asked to take a political poll. I only know two people who have. So, I am always amazed when polls of likely voters come out.
Are these polls really of likely voters or just likely voters who pick up the phone and answer questions?
Its not as if they release the wording of the questions with the poll numbers on the telly…or even explain what the margin of error means when they release that shit…and they certainly do not explain the math behind that shit or how many folks made up the sample size or how diverse the geography or how they account for dips in that geographic diversity to make sure that all the respondents aren’t from the county or city or rural areas.
Politics remains local and this Voter Education teacher knows that what motivates one voter doesn’t mean shit to another…that where a voter lives influences how they vote…that the demands of a voter’s life influence how likely their ass is to vote…and that most motherfuckers make up their damned minds on who they will vote for in November in October.
Pretty much the weekend before the election.
A bitch doesn’t think that the late deciding of voters is a bad thing. As a political junkie my ass knows that all manner of shit comes out in the final weeks of an election. Plus, waiting and pondering means that folks are thinking…and that’s a good thing.
I just hope that they are thinking about their lives and what this election will mean to them…
…and not waiting for a poll of likely voters to tell them where to find the rest of the +/- 3% herd.
