Too Much Information

October 21, 2007

This is just a random musing, but I wish opinion polls were severly restricted.

As it stands, it’s only too easy for political leaders to get the exact picture of the current political situation, and govern based on electoral self-interests. The constant poll-spamming lead to a situation where there are no convictions left whatsoever – only a desire to score poll points.

Knowledge is power, power corrupts and, in this case, it’s corrupting the very core of our democracies – that people are expected to represent other’s interests or ideals, not to advance their own reelection.

    i agree especially because most polls aren’t done in a way that show legitimate standing.

    FOr example, in AMerica, the Iowa Straw poll is a very unscientific and retarded poll but it is still used as a major talking point.
