Quote of the Week: E. B. White

Sina Odugbemi's picture

 

“The so-called science of poll-taking is not a science at all but mere necromancy.  People are unpredictable by nature, and although you can take a nation’s pulse, you can’t be sure that the nation hasn’t just run up a flight of stairs, and although you can take a nation’s blood pressure, you can’t be sure that if you came back in twenty minutes you’d get the same reading. This is a damn fine thing.” 

-- E. B. White
