The polls are skewed because they only report the final poll question. If you were to look at the polls and all their questions, you will see they
filter down the responses to only a select group of people.
When you look at the previous poll questions, you will see response rates of 100%, because if the person did not answer the previous question in the
right way, they response on the 2nd question will be filtered out of the final results.
It will be questions like - are you registered to vote. Are you a democrat or republican. etc.
So if you are an independant, then your responses are ignored in some cases. Like take the presidential nominee polls for the parties. Those polls
will filter out anyone who didn't vote republican in the previous election etc. If you say you voted for Kerry in the previous election, then your
response will be filtered out of the republican nominee polls, even if you were/had planned on voting for a republican in the nomination elections
