Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) As my readers know, I don’t pay much attention to polls. I think they are a total waste of time and have proven to be extremely inaccurate over the past few years. According to polls, Mitt Romney should have been president after the 2012 elections. Just as the polls have been egregiously wrong in predicting election results,... [Read more...]
