I have been seeing various polls and threads on this website that either refer to some poll by some group, or on the opposing side, accuse said group or other groups of taking skewed polls.

Quite a few of these seem to be approval polls for either the president or members of his administration.

So I thought I'd take a poll to see how many of you trust or distrust polls put out by the media (I include all sides of the media in this).

Personally, I am inclined to distrust all polls unless I see the exact questions so I can decide for myself if they are biased or not.
