CNN’s Campbell Brown talked to Charles Barkley about the presidential election. Barkley believes that polls are “absolutely useless.”

Barkley said, “I think seriously, most people who are racists, they’re not going to answer the question correctly, either on a phone call or on camera. So 100 percent believe the polls are flat-out useless.”

CNN has a transcript of Barkley’s interview here.
