    Actually, the national polls at the Presidential election were pretty good. The issue was in the way the media presented what a small popular vote lead actually means in an election that isn't decided by popular vote. On the subject of what we over here call the "Shy Tory Factor", it is sometimes the case that online and automated polls show a different result to in-person polls, although the size of that issue is disputed, and those types of polls are not necessarily more accurate due to other factors such as low response rate. I'm a maths and stats guy, so I'm a bit nerdy about this sort of stuff!

    To prove that no one knows what's going on in Alabama: Emerson Polling released a poll that showed Moore up by nine this morning. Hours later, Fox News released a poll that showed Jones up by ten. Then, as if that wasn't enough, Monmouth released a poll showing the race as a tie.
