Every time I see some story, post, or tweet breathlessly reporting the various US presidential candidates’ standing in national polls, I wonder what the point of this information is. We do not vote nationally in either the primaries or the general election. Paying attention to national polling seems like a recipe for missing the much more important state-level rankings of the candidates.
  1. @petebrown I have felt that way for a long time, every time some news program announce that candidate A leads in a national poll, I am thinking well that a useless poll.
