They each give their own analysis of the data.
This is the best assurance against any special sauce by either side. Therefore it is my favorite poll.
Usually they publish 3 polls every presidential cycle.One just before the election,one month out and two months out. I guess they will do a tracking poll now published every three days.
Let see what the polls look like after the debates and heading into the final leg of the race.
The closer it gets, the more the polling firms will want to get it right and call the race correctly.
Thanks for the link.
A non bias gold Standard that should be taken seriously, unlike the garbage polling of CBS, Hotline, and the Daily Kos.
Does ther ace baiter get to use a teleprompter for the debates or do they know what questions are in advance? I have a feeling the election is not going to be close-I know that is probably just me but I truly think the majority of sane people are scared to death of Obama & his hate fulled crew.
Oops! Ment to say race baiter
and if so, can we get a little HAPPY around here?....this is good news....
what the heck is the story with Indiana?? Geez???
I encourage everyone to take a look here...GOP leads the Dems on the generic Congressional question 41.8% to 39.7%.
Didn’t they have another poll just days ago that showed McCain up a couple more points? I thought this outfit didn’t do a running daily average. In any case as they often are quite accurate I am encouraged by these numbers. It is very close but we can hope the gap will grow. Just 8 days to the first debate.
I don’t think they did a tracking poll in 2004. I like what they’re reporting though!
Not yet,maybe on Nov.4th.;))
But the second and third are badly suited for Obama. the second is Town Hall, and the third is sit down, were he cannot roam the stage.
No prompters, but hack DEM media moderators.
Yes is very encouraging because of their non bias, and the fact that they have a accurate reputation to try and keep.
“Battleground” is the name of the poll conducted by the two polling firms.
It does not refer to “battleground states.”
It polls the entire country.
He’s toast-oh sorry that’s probably a racist thing to say!
Looking good for us!
