    No pitty. They are doing it to themselves.
    The only way to stop democrats' insane drive to impeach Trump and all their other illicit shenanigan is to force them to pay for it all out of their own pockets when they lose.

    Some polls are taken for public consumption. Those are paid for results.

    Pollsters still know how to conduct proper polls, but those results are proprietary and can't be shared without the owners consent.

    The problem is that Americans don't know which is which.

    This is why I maintain that the only poll that is truly accurate is the one conducted on election day. All the rest are superfluous.

    Some post polls as a response to liberals living and dying with them.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Polls are based on scientifically valid techniques for understanding general opinions and disposition of a population, but like all science, they are totally dependent of the integrity and honesty of those conducting them. What is happening to opinion polls is probably indicative of what is happening throughout all fields of science, like the "canary in the coal mine" except that nobody gives a $#@! about the science behind anything anymore, just getting paid a sum of money considered commensurate with one's overeducation.
    The only way to stop democrats' insane drive to impeach Trump and all their other illicit shenanigan is to force them to pay for it all out of their own pockets when they lose.
