Stop! Don’t move another inch. If you’re looking at the newspaper and reading that “so-and-so is going to win according to polls” then don’t even bother voting. I mean it. While you’re at it you might as well put a gun to your head and pull the trigger.
Why do I say that? Because you’ve already stopped thinking and when you’ve stopped thinking you’ve ceased to exist. You’re not living. You’re just a corpse.
If, on the other hand, you choose to put down the newspaper, disregard what the polls are saying, and make your choice based on your honest opinion then, welcome to the planet. I applaud you.
IF you vote merely because you read in the newspaper or magazine, or saw on TV, that one of the candidates was ahead in the polls, you have effectively sold your vote to that media outlet. You believed their pitch and now you’re buying their products. You don’t care if their product kills your children you’re buying it because everyone else is.
The media is not unbiased. They are a business like any other, they’re there to make money.
Don’t sell your vote to the media. If you see a popular vote poll in the newspaper turn the page. The choice is yours to make.
