Those damned pollsters

What's Mallard raving about today?

Pollsters.

Uhhhh, Mallard...pollsters don't rate things.

They report on the percentages of people who respond in a certain way to questions.

In other words, they poll.

Dammit, this one made me laugh. How embarrassing is that?

I thought it was funny, too.

The funny Mallard comics are the ones he made while sober. Sadly they are few and far between.

Tinsley was writing these post-election strips before the election. He's just treading water for now.

Yeah, it's funny and not hateful. But what's with the crotch shot ... again?

At least the guy is wearing pants ... and, apparently, Depends.

I thought it was especially funny that the margin of error would push the person in question above 10 an 11.5. Shades of "Spinal Tap" there...

He brings a bottle of Bombay Sapphire with him to the beach. Nice touch, Tinsley.

Woulda worked better if he had said 8. With a MOE of 3 or 4 percent, the election polls never report precision beyond the decimal point. The only ones that do are reporting averages of multiple polls.

Also, two right feet.

Mallard hates pollsters.

But he apparently does not understand how statistics even work. No surprise there really.

"...two right feet..."

Well d'uh! It's a rightwing pollster!
