Straw polls are not even true polls. They have no methodology and are essentially garbage in … garbage out.
Why do we perpetuate this farce on the right? Leave the 19th century fakery to the left. In the case of CPAC, only two winners of straw polls in thirty-eight years have become POTUS – Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. A bigger tragedy is that media reports on straw polls as accurate when they have no basis for accuracy.
I might just rig a straw poll one day and win to prove the farce. Maybe not … I would rather spend my money buying open bowls of hot air.
