The Media and Political Data

The media constantly throws polls and surveys around and often fail to see what the consequences are. People say that the media is presenting political polls and surveys deliberately for a political cause but I believe they are only do it because the people want to see it. When religion does get involved in politics it tells what and how people should vote, but the media very rarely does this. Instead, they just present the data suggesting to people who to vote for. This data very often ignores the issues and stance that politicians stand for but just suggests who are the viable choices. Religion on the other hand, tackles the issues and the stance politicians more thoroughly. Doing this may make people more informed voters, but at times these informed voters do not see the big political picture and often do not get they voted for.
