Default hahahahaha. New "polling" articles crack me up.

Ever since the Republicans had their convention, obama has been slowly gaining points, and has maintained a 7-12 point lead in the polls. During this time we've heard everything from "He is getting ready to start the transition to office" to "Obama is preparing for his Chicago victory celebration".

Numerous polls, (gallup/ap/etc) now have obama at a 2 point lead, and the mass media is now running all sorts of articles on how polls aren't accurate and shouldn't even be considered as a way to see who is leading, that America is voicing their opinion on the next president by how many people attend obama or mccain's rally's, and obama is CLEARLY in the lead by a huge %.

I actually feel sorry for the people who are the blind sheep that follow this kind of info.

actually, some pollsters have consistently been within .3 for the last major elections.

But they don't use CNN's polling method of only calling people in New Hampshire.
