Ann Coulter's Surprising Views On Polling

Someone should teach Ann Coulter a thing or two about statistics, polling, and reality in general.

On Sunday, Coulter said the following regarding the right-wing proclaimed appreciation day for Chick-fil-A, which caused conservatives to flock to the fast food restaurant as if Jesus himself was delivering the Sermon on the Mount from the drive-thru window.  The outpouring of support stemmed from comments the founder, Dan Cathy, made regarding his anti-gay views.

 "When you see crowds like that coming out [to support Chick-fil-A], no, I'm sorry, I don't believe the polls on gay marriage. Let us vote. Those polls I believe, and it makes me suspicious at the polls on the presidential election."

So let me get this straight - Coulter believes polls regarding things like gay marriage are wrong because a lot of conservatives went to Chick-fil-A on one particular day, so that must have been an indicator that the polls are wrong and a majority of Americans are against gay marriage, and by default, the president as well.

So gauging public opinion by focusing solely on a protest group is proof that America as anti-gay? I guess that Klan rally I read about is indicative of America's overwhelmingly pro-Aryan views.
