    The polls here in Australia were a waste of time ...

    Just watching how stunned the lucky Labor members looked in that first week after shows that they believed in them.
    The polls consistently said in the weeks before that it was going to be close !!!!
    Most of these polls were generated by the press.
    A close poll makes a better headline story.

    Therefore same same in the US ...

    Reagan walked all over Carter in the 81 election, yet the polls were afraid to call it. Too close they said.
    They are calling them close again this time.

    The only reliable polls are the betting polls.

    They always get it right.

    Bush 60/40.
