election polls

tis the season of election polls
polls before the (non)debate, polls after the debate, polls between debates

May I suggest that the problem with polls is due to the Heisenburg Uncertainity Principle. This says, in essence, that under certain circumstances the very process of measurement can affect the outcome of a measurement in unpredictable ways. In other words, the very act (not just the way) of asking the question can skew the answer... And Canadian politics is certainly skewed.

There's a choice?

of course there is:
you can choose to love in the "for better or for worse" or you can choose not to get married
