Political polls propaganda

As the presidential election draws near, the left-stream media inundates us with poll results. You know the ones I am talking about: Gallup, Rasmussen, CNN and ABC, etc. I don't believe these polls, because they don't reflect the views of anyone I know, and I wonder who is actually getting polled. My own unscientific poll of people I know indicates no one has ever been contacted by any of the above polls -- not only for this election but for any election in history, even though they all have lived long lives. I've never been contacted in my entire 65 years. One can only conclude that the above-named polls are deliberately directed at an entirely different sample of people somewhere else in the world. Other polls online show entirely different results, especially the American Family Association poll, which indicates McCain/Palin leads about 94 percent to about 6 percent. The left-stream media would have us believe the election is already decided, and it is using what seems to be biased polls as a tool. This is nothing more than propaganda.
