Dick Morris says telephone polling is no longer reliable because it’s becoming increasingly difficult to reach a representative sample of Americans. At the moment, we appear to be in a period of uncertainty between the decreasing reliability of telephone polls and the increasing reliability of internet polls. Is this situation good or bad? Polls have become a intellectual crutch for politicians, journalists, and voters. I can’t help but think that an era of unreliability in polling might lead to a renaissance in critical thinking.
