There is a quite foolish reliance on small but wildly variable polling results in the Australian press.
So it seems sensible to ask you, the intelligent reader to note just which poll you consider to be the most reliable.
We all know that the differences between the polls will narrow as the election comes close. That is exam time for the pollsters.
The last week will show figures which will be very close to reality.
In the meantime, it seems that most polls are somewhere over the rainbow and may be nowhere near the Australian sentiment.
So which poll do you trust mid-term, when only the innate honesty of the pollsters is on display.
There is a poll on the left of this post where you may vote to indicate your preferred poll.
