Each poll is like a sunset

“The interesting thing about polls right now—and it’s the only interesting thing—is that it’s like taking a picture of a sunset, each poll. There’s going to be another sunset tomorrow. Things change. Nobody is paying attention really—other than people like us—to a future election a year away. The interesting aspect of the election, I would submit, is that we have one political party, the Republican Party, seriously interested, seemingly from top to bottom, in marching this country backward. Their principal interest is in taking things away from people—things that people have grown used to living with,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during this Morning Joe conversation about the unreliable nature of political polls.
