Another Worthless Poll

So, the Las Vegas Review Journal decided to waste some money on another presidential poll. Alas, it is worthless. Why? They asked 300 registered Democrats. 300 is not a decent sample for a poll which is evident by the given margin of error, which is ridiculously high at +/- 6%. The poll also includes Al Gore, who's not even running. Therefore, the numbers mean nothing and I won't even bother to post them here.

Wait a second, I just looked at their method page and things don't quite add up. While they claim to have asked 300 registered Dems, the method page states that only 259 Democrats were interviewed, a similar number of Reps for the Republican poll and more than 100 Independents. This poll is absurd. Worthless, worthless, worthless.
