Strong Words Week 9- Myriann Harden

This week I chose this The New Yorker article about election polls. I think it is interesting that someone  boldly says that polls do not matter when it comes to big elections.

I believe that it is true that no one can predict human behavior, so polls are basically meaningless. They become even more meaningless as our world changes and more media outlets appear. It seems like every news outlet has their own poll numbers, and none of them agree with the others.

Also it is very easy for some groups to sway the poll(s) in favor of their group or party.
