not a beautiful or unique snowflake

I posted a few days an article critical of political polls based on a brief mention in a Washington Post article about the response rate polls receive. They've posted a long article on this subject.

I actually think the most important point in that article isn't the inaccuracy of the polls, but their irrelevance: the media would be better off writing and investigating other subjects about the candidates, and people would be better off learning about the candidates, rather than spending time handicapping the races. Does how they're polling actually affect how you're going to vote? What does it serve, then?
