3. When Gallop posted R + 7 and IBT TIPP had O + 5, I wanted to shit myself.

That was the day when I knew Obama had this thing wrapped up. Gallup was way over the top, few could take them seriousl, yet many in the MSM did just that and they got burned for it. I noticed during the last two weeks, no one was reporting Gallups numbers anymore.

4. Gallup is such a known name

but I kinda remember from 2008 that it was dead wrong. And a hint of favoring the Rs. At least when Mr. Newport was being interviewed. One day my spouse was worried - this is what Gallup says? I replied not to worry that it is tilted R. Spouse was shocked.
