Same Thing Twice: Polling Firms of 2020
While writing about 538 on r/Conspiracy, on Reddit, I happened upon the usual tongue-tied Newsweek quoting Gen Z kids, and their proto-metaphysical faith in the general media regard for 538, the obvious racketeering this organization perpetrated still spinning them around by their proverbial feet, like so much ninety pound weakling. The frantic and digital denseness of the typical college dropouts I normally encounter did leave me with one impression that they all have in common: they are bound to be fooled, again!
Polling firms note a drop in accuracy directly correlatable to the rise of caller ID. For those of us who are older, or those of us who loved The Jerky Boys: this is obvious.
But, for them, they were born in the procedural evolution of the loss of accuracy polls tend to reflect. And, whether it is the Heisman, and the loss by the heavily favored Tugavaila, or the Georgia Governor's race: they don't seem to be getting the message.
