I can't remember who i was listening to but this guy was talking about all of the polls being done both nationally and at the state level. You have Zogby, Rasmussen, CNN, Foxnews, Newsweek, etc. Some of these polling places are liberal and some conservative.

Anyway the guy said that in the months leading up to the election, it is not uncommon for pollsters to skew the polls to favor their positions in an attempt to influence the election. BUT In the days leading up to an election, pollsters will try to be as accurate as they can so that on election night, it will show that their polling results were spot on and that their numbers can be trusted.

This was the reason that he gave for why he thinks Bush's lead in the polls will start opening up.

It is so hard to believe half of Americans look at Kerry, Ms. Kerry and Edwards and say they will vote for them....

Those that do believe Kerry is Santa Claus and will give them huge welfare checks after confiscating all the money from Republicans and evil corporations - a Marxist utopia indeed!

No intelligent, thoughtful person could possibly vote for Kerry but remmember: half the population is below average intelligence.

One week from now the Kerry campaign will be in a free fall. The state polls will start lining up with the national polls around the middle of next week.

It's a bell curve. Most of the population has average intelligence.
