    Advertisements [?]And they have been for a while. Take the poll w/ a significant amount of skepticism.

    That being said, the poll is only scary because it's cover for the possibility of a STOLEN election, otherwise, it's pure horseshit.

    Here's a post about Gallup I wrote a few years ago that shows how they are pure horseshit:

    1. Before they said Obama was ahead, though
    But maybe he was further ahead in reality than they said.
    Beetwasher's face must be beet red, judging by the use of caps:

    2. That Creates The Illusion Of A HUGE McCain Bounce
    Get it? Obama ahead by a lot, the WHAMMO, McCain has the AMAZING SURGE IN SUPPORT making it incredibly "newsworthy".

    26. YOU ARE WRONG WRONG WRONG
    I understand it is getting emotional around here but what you posted is wrong. Yes it is true that the % of Dems/Reps/Ind, etc. change from poll sample to poll sample. That is why they use weighting models to either "weight" data up if they fall below a threshhold or "weight" it down if they overdeliver a threshhold. The alternative to this "weighting" method is called quota sampling but that is less credible than weighting data.

    This recent poll could be some statistical bounce from day to day but quite frankly it is probably pretty correct. I know we don't want to hear or see that but it's true. I think Palin made a big impact on the fundie nut crowd and since McCain didn't have a stroke during his speech (which woul dhave made it more fun) then he got a big bounce. Let's see where they are in a week or so.

    13. We Should Be Going After Gallup
    Read the post I linked to in my OP. They are a Repub propoganda tool, no more and have been for a while now. They should be viewed as such.

    16. They have had Obama up for a long time.
    McCain took the lead during the convention. You need undeniable evidence to prove this poll as Republican propaganda
    No he/she/it doesn't. :D

    17. It Doesn't Matter
    Read the links in my OP. I don't know what you would consider "proof", but there's certainly evidence there.
    Nope, facts don't matter, by gosh.

    I'm really glad that somebody over brought up that you can't say polls are bullshit when you don't like what they say, but cheer them when they go your way.

    When Obama is ahead, Gallup is "100% accurate."

    When McCain is ahead, Gallup is "100% PURE UNADULTARATED REPUB PROPOGANDA."

    Lather, rinse, repeat.
    OPEACHMENT NOW!!!

    18. So Gallup had a lot of people at DU fooled last week?
    Last week when Gallup had Obama up by eight points a lot of posters at DU were reveling in it. But now that they have McCain ahead suddenly Gallup is a fraud. You can't have it both ways people.
    Sometimes even DUmmies make sense.

    Beetwasher can't even spell "Unadulterated" or "propaganda." The fact that he misspelled "Propaganda" the same way twice shows that it wasn't just a typo, he really doesn't know how to spell it.

    And DU has spell check!
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.
