Is it time for national polls to go silent in the 2016 Election for President of the United States?


Each and every day polling institutions seem to report confusing and conflicting national polls related to the upcoming Presidential election. But, the winner of the President of the United States of America is not chosen by majority national vote. The USA is a Democratic Republic by which the new president is determined by the majority vote in individual states. Thus, the only relevant polls are State polls and not national polls. If this is so, why report national polls any longer?

    Thank you Greg for your comment. I live in California and I was saddened by the fact that the Republican Party gave up and did not attempt to promote even one candidate for Barbara Boxer's U.S. Senate seat. The party of Reagan is AWOL in California.
