Slanted views from skewed polls

The polls that you use are inefficient as they are biased towards the views and the insights of the white voter. Ranging from the extreme right to the extreme left a ledge insight into the thinking and political nature of the white perspective but as we know America is a lot more than its white subset. So how about more balanced and fair polls being taken into account - like those that asks those whine are poor to rich, black to white, and any and everybody in between, because that’s what America is. Chill with the Bernie bashing too, it’s not cool. If you can speak well of tulsi gabbard and act like you can’t see the obvious with her I am sure you can find something well off to say about every candidate sander included. Tell the truth about buttegieg as well, he has questionable tendencies so stop glorifying him as he is not. Put him on the same ground as all that seek the presidency.
