Election Stories and Coverage Are Inescapable
Even though I've never personally been polled in my entire life, nor have I ever met anyone who has been polled, new election polls are apparently being conducted and reported upon every single day. I don't know who is being polled -- it could be just the same six people over and over again, like maybe locked in a bunker until the election is over or something -- just that polls are happening constantly.
"Same question as yesterday, Frank. If the election was held today, who would you vote for, and don't say
'Whoever lets me out of this bunker' again."
If you don't like the Gallup polls I posted, don't worry, Pew is also regularly conducting their own polls. And here's a Nate Silver article discussing why these polls might be misleading.
But it's not just polls, and articles reporting on polls, and articles criticizing polls that fill up the Internet every election season; you can't escape political coverage, not on the Internet and not on TV. Hell, even Cracked, the least responsible media outlet in history, gets swept up in election fever. I'm obsessed with presidential campaigns to a pretty unhealthy degree, as evidenced by the ten articles I wrote about the last election.
