Customer Reviews

Thee Madam Bomb ,

Not a time waster.

Nice job of digging into polls, including those done by the producers, as well as those done by others. Nice to hear frank talk about polls and polling. Gets a little wonky at times but much better than just some surface gab about the numbers.
