Letter: Prohibit polls, media in future elections

The polls (should) be prohibited and the media refrain from getting involved in their prognostications which obviously are also meaningless.

To the editor:

The bitter lengthy campaign has concluded and the shocking results indicated Donald Trump became the 45th US president-elect.

His task in a completely new role will undoubtedly be challenging and somewhat difficult.

It has again been proven that polls are useless and do not reveal anything other than attempt to influence constituents the direction in which to cast their ballots.

As a suggestion, the polls be restricted and prohibited and, the media refrain from getting involved in their prognostications which obviously are also meaningless.

The votes are in and counted, the people have made their decision.
