I Hate Polls

I especially hate polls like this
Almost half of Americans polled Monday evening disagreed with the jury's decision to acquit Michael Jackson on all 10 counts in his child molestation and conspiracy trial, according to a CNN/USA/Gallup poll.

In the survey, 48 percent of respondents said they disagreed with the verdict, while 34 percent said they agreed with the decision.
The only poll that mattered is this one
Jurors took an anonymous poll among themselves early in their deliberations on the charges against Michael Jackson, and it was apparent that most believed the pop star was innocent.

Juror Raymond Hultman said he and two others didn't initially share that opinion, but the majority eventually convinced the three that the evidence wasn't strong enough to convict Jackson on the charges they were deciding.
For 14 weeks, these jurors listened to all the evidence and decided that Jackson was not guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt." The average American, on the other hand, heard about the case and its evidence for what, five minutes a day at most?

But 48% of them still feel qualified to declare Jackson guilty?

Shut up, idiots.
