130. Most 18-24 yr. olds use cell phones.
Kerry has a large following in this age group. Cell phones are not called by pollsters -- only land line phones are.

Land line phones do not include this group of voters so the sample is tainted.

The only way to get accurate polling is to use various methods and average them out. That is not done in most of these polls.

Cell phones, I believe, are not called possibly because they are illegal, so there is a huge, huge group of people out there not being contacted for these polls we are hearing about. That makes the polling process faulty and fraudulent.

Only 50% of Americans voted in the last election so there is a sleeping giant in this country highly motivated to getting rid of George W. Bush. People who are being polled now and people who have NEVER been polled, myself included, will show up at precincts all over the country ready to cast their vote for John Kerry.
