The trouble with polls

Steve Kornacki (Salon): "Poll results on individual policy issues tend to be extremely misleading. Most voters simply don't follow policy debates nearly as closely as political commentators do. Their feelings are often ill-formed and malleable. When presented with an isolated policy question, they're prone to give one response, only to reverse themselves when given more information."
