It seems strange in this age of political communication and unparalleled polling that one of America's premier public opinion survey operations can utterly flop in predicting a presidential vote.
Here's a story about the reasons the Gallup poll got it all so wrong last year when it kept predicting a Mitt Romney victory in November.
And then there are the "instant" robo-polls that have become omnipresent in Connecticut and around the nation. They too have their problems.
Could it be we all pay way too much attention to polls? Of course, that doesn't mean we're going to stop.
