1. We really have to cool it with the polls
I long to go back to the days when there was only one poll a month and only two or three pollsters in the whole country.

3. Heck, just ten years ago there were not polls like this. Way too many, brain overload.
At least Obama's #'s vs the Repubs look decent but it is too early for 2012.

2. Why do people bother with Internet polls?
Hasn't Zogby taught them anything?

7. Pollster averages out many different national polls
Edited on Tue Aug-17-10 03:47 PM by discopants
Romney and Huck have the smallest spread, I think that's a good thing for Dems to know at this point ... and Palin just sucks, that's good for them to get a grip on.

4. I love how "Generic Republican" beats Obama
but as soon as you start naming contenders, he crushes all of them.

5. As a resident of Minnesota
this gives me much to be happy about.

42% Obama, 23% Pawlenty

6. That's Because The Rest of American Doesn't Know Tim Pawlenty
and when they do, it'll be 86% Obama, 14% Pawlenty, and the 14% will be insomniacs thankful to Tim for getting a good night's rest.
