Relying on poll of polls is like a person who can’t swim crossing a river on foot relying on a statistician who told him the average depth of the river is 4 feet
Please note average of 6+4+2 is 4. At 6 feet you drown! 1/2

Polling in the southern state was held on Saturday and the results will be declared on Tuesday.
Over 70 per cent voter turnout was recorded in the high-stakes election.
Meanwhile, BJP president Amit Shah asserted the party would form the next government in Karnataka.
“The BJP will form the government in Karnataka on May 15 evening after the results,” Shah said while addressing a gathering of around 15,000 BJP workers at Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Stadium near Panaji.
Most of the post-poll surveys have predicted the BJP to emerge as the single largest party in Karnataka, with the JD(S) of former prime minister H D Deve Gowda likely to emerge as the kingmaker.
Polling was held yesterday in 222 constituencies in Karnataka, currently ruled by the Congress.
Any party or alliance will need the support of 112 MLAs to form the new government.
Shah who spoke on various issues, recalled the cross-border surgical strike launched by Indian forces on terrorist launch pads in 2016.
He said after US and Israel, the country is now known to avenge the killings of its soldiers During the meeting on Sunday, a video message of Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who is undergoing treatment in the USA since March this year, was also played.
In the message, Parrikar announced that he would return to his home state within the next few weeks.
Recalling Parrikar’s tenure as defence minister, Shah described him as a “hardworking person with a grip on the administration”.
