Quotes[edit]

  • I could prove God statistically. Take the human body alone — the chances that all the functions of an individual would just happen is a statistical monstrosity.

Unsourced[edit]

  • Polling is merely an instrument for gauging public opinion. When a president or any other leader pays attention to poll results, he is, in effect, paying attention to the views of the people. Any other interpretation is nonsense.
