19. Or all the damn polls

 

It just makes me laugh. It is like voting for your favorite show on CBS.

I am an Xer, I kind of remember the loyalty to tv stations, how quaint.

We are more "fluid" in our loyalties on a lot of things...sure there are the crazed legions of fans for Apple, Star Wars and The Big Bang Theory..but it isn't that iron clad with a lot of other things.

There are more issue driven people.

Veganism
Climate matters
Human traffic
Immigration
GMOs
TTP
Housing

etc.

A lot of the OW protesters are still connected but working in individual issue groups. There is no way the antiquated method of polling can interpret where people are. They don't know where to look or how to even ask the questions that will give them real information. But people show up...in mass to Bernie or Trump and they barely register that the disgust with all of it has finally reached a majority. Change is afoot.
