Elections: no to opinion polls

Improve the vote by:

1) Banning opinion polls during the official election campaign.

Why are Canadians (and voters in general) still subjected to distracting and often misleading opinion polls during an election?  Despite all the gobbledegook from pollsters, the attempt to predict election results is an exercise in futility.

If the news-tainment media would not pander to and/or fund pollsters, we would not have this problem.

Instead, to improve customer satisfaction, the media may want to do something worthwhile such as drilling down to reveal what’s behind the sound bites of an election.


2) On election day, results should not be made public until all polling stations have closed.

This will eliminate voters in one area being influenced by voting results from another.
