29. Why quote YouGuv? Its utterly worthless
Not a random sample, it comes from a "recruited panel"

Was it just because Kerry led in it?

The RCP average of the final 8 polls conducted a week or less before the election gave Bush edge by a margin of 48.9%-46.9%, and Kerry only led in 2.

Allocate undecideds to 60% Kerry and 40% Bush, and the total would be Bush 50.58% Kerry 49.42%; pretty damn close to the actual popular vote total, hits Bush's number head on.
