33. It makes no sense that anyone would use party weighting at all,
when party identification is so fluid.

The national association of pollsters advises against it, but Zogby weights by party now. I'm assuming they use 2004 exit poll numbers, which would explain why their results show a narrow gap between Obama and McCain. (Republicans are being over-weighted in the poll.)
