Start by looking at the simple stuff, belt condition, belt tension, pulleys tight and aligned, motor tight, blade running true without run out, blade washers correctly installed, blade on backward, guard splitter not aligned with the blade, blade not parallel with miter slots, fence not parallel with blade, cutting lumber that is not flat to the table, cutting wood that is not dry. All these simple things can add up to be a real and dangerous problem! Instead of getting flustered... start looking to the simple things first.
