The Role of Voting Polls

The role of voting polls is to gauge the predominant thinking about certain issues and politicians. Some times they are accurate. Other times they are wrong.

Do not permit any published poll to cause you to decide who or what you will support. Keep your reasons for your choices always at the forefront. If your facts or beliefs should change regarding that issue or person, then you will adjust accordingly. However, do not get trapped by the "mob mentality" or "group think". Do not allow your mind to be changed on the basis of how many support an issue. In times of change, many times the ones who are leading the change are in the minority simply because it is human nature to resist change. Always look past the numbers to the facts of the issue or the values and stance of the politician and let those be your guide.
