I'm not carping, but do you know WHICH polls these numbers represent? In the last few days before an election pollsters sometimes adjust their numbers. Sometimes they change them the morning of election itself. That way they can, if they choose, use earlier poll numbers to influence voters and then correct the numbers at the last minute so they look better on the record.
As I recall, Zogby massaged his numbers at the last minute, but I don't recall the details.

Look at the numbers in the poll. Obviously they used the zogby latest "true" poll which had gore at 48% and Bush at 46%. Everyone sang the praises that only zogby got it right, but in reality he only hot half of it right. Bush finished with 98%. It was within the margin of error, but not dead on like everyone claims.
Bingo! Zogby's MO is to produce phony influencing polls before the election and then release a "final" poll which count towards the "accuracy" statistics. We've seen that this year.
