This happens to me in every election cycle: I reach a point where the only news stories I can bear to look at contain the word "poll." All other information is meaningless. Even stories about the latest antics of Obama and Romney have value only insofar as they may or may not move the numbers; the antics have no interest in and of themselves. If a nuke took out a small town in Arizona, the first thought to enter my brain (after "Oh my God!" and "Those poor people!") would be "How will this affect the polls?"
2008 was easier on me, since I sort of, kind of, vaguely, provisionally wanted McCain to win, even though his loss was inevitable. This year is different. As noted in earlier posts, I haven't grown to love Obama. But I loathe Mitt Romney. He is, by far, the oiliest liar ever to get this close to the highest office within my lifetime -- and I'm old enough to recall Nixon.
I probably should do a video about the second debate, but that task may be pointless. Right now, I'm looking for a way not
to think about polls. Any suggestions?
