    Polls can only react to what HAS happened to condition the minds of the voters.

    This poll was before the attack poodle Lula The Crook joined with DumbAss and bamboozled the less intelligent people with all sorts of flim-flam.

    It is always thus, just the names of the countries change.

    In the UK it's the Labour voters who can be relied upon to vote for a donkey with a red rosette on it's bridle.

    Vote in Aetius is the same as voting in the back of speculation and “Ciranda Financeira”.

    Goodbye production!
    Goodbye jobs!

    At the end of the day unless they can prove the pollsters misreported the data they collected surely the only option is to sue the members of the electorate that gave them incorrect information about their voting intentions or changed their mind on the day.

    Who are these people ? Do you know them ?
    Make a few phone calls, ask a few questions standing around in a shopping mall, and then coming out with “ an accurate voting prediction ? ” Hah !

    As I've said before, don't trust the polls and polltakers here.

    They are easily bought and sold, inaccurate, and not to be trusted except by the mentally challenged and politically naïve.

    Ola Jack-

    Yet I read that Lula and Aceio are the best of friends.

    It will never really be “ Goodbye Lula. ” For a few decades.
