Freyja

(frā`yä) or

Freya

(frā`ä), Norse goddess of love, marriage, and fertility. Her identity and attributes were often confused with those of the goddess Frigg. As a deity of the dead, Freyja was entitled to half the warriors killed in battle, the other half going to Odin. She was the sister of the god Frey and was frequently represented as riding in a chariot drawn by cats.

However, all subsequent presidents sought to incorporate polls into their operations (for an in-depth discussion of the Nixon, Ford, Carter, and Reagan polling apparatuses, see Heith 1998, 2000).
Previous scholarly analysis contradicts Caddell's disingenuous naivete (see Heith 1997, 1998, 2000).
