...in Massachusetts.

In the national polls, Gore was trailing 2-3 points behind Bush and everyone thought Bush was going to win quite comfortably. Which made Gore's strong showing in the electoral map and winning the popular vote even the more surprising.

Gore did win the Popular Vote. Also, recent advances have made polls much, much better in the past few years.

How do you actually make advances in polling? Do you like A or B?

Such as, when someone says they're voting for McCain, the pollster screams, "LIAR, LIAR PANTS ON FIRE..!!" and chalks up another vote for the messiah.

Better models and polling methods. Questions have come a long way.

Did you actually say that out loud before you posted it? I just want to be sure that you know how that sounds.

This is what William Saletan wrote about in Slate:


Since Labor Day, the media have released about 20 polls on the presidential race. Three show a dead heat, one shows George W. Bush leading by a single percentage point, and the rest show Al Gore leading by one to 10 points. In the latest polls, Gore leads by an average of five points. It's fashionable at this stage to caution that "anything can happen," that Bush is "retooling," and that the numbers can turn in Bush's favor just as easily as they turned against him. But they can't. The numbers are moving toward Gore because fundamental dynamics tilt the election in his favor. The only question has been how far those dynamics would carry him. Now that he has passed Bush, the race is over.

He was not talking about massachusetts
