Does political polls matter any more?


In light of recent events, does any political polls matter? How accurate are they? It seems to me, if I am a pollster, I would go back to the drawing board and find out what went wrong before taking any more polls...perhaps they are using the wrong mix and perhaps they need a different sample...or a larger sample...

    If the popular vote is not what wins our elections, why take polls that predict that result? Shouldn't polls be fashioned after the electoral model and not popular vote? Just curious.

    I'm sorry but I don't buy it. If they polled people in the numbers and distribution of Dem, Republican and independents, the outcome will reflect the sentiments of the people better. Just look at the rallies of Trump compared to Clinton...
