Ben: I agree with you that polls are futile. On line polls exclude many of the poor and working poor who do not have access to computers. I am interested in knowing what the non voter turnout is, looking at some of the numbers, I would say that quite a few people did not vote. It is these numbers that really tell what the people are feeling. There are many who feel their voices are not heard. Besides some people vote because my daddy voted and my granddaddy voted for the same party without really looking at the issues, the party and how it relates to them. One thing that boggles my mind is how the rural areas tend to vote conservative, yet many in the rural areas struggle in poverty, yet poverty was not really on any of the parties platform. Oh well as job losses add up and more start to struggle, maybe the next election, people will listen to the voices instead of the sound bits.
