12. I take your point, but actually, the OP is pretty selective
For instance, he's adamant that instead of using "likely voter" poll results, one should use registered voter results and then allocate most of the undecided voters to Kerry. But that's not what Zogby did, so it's hard to see how Zogby could be "beyond reproach." Zogby's last nationwide projection actually gave Bush an 0.3-point lead, so in ordinary English, it just isn't true that Zogby matched the so-called True Vote.

At any rate, not only do I think the Interactive polls have been appallingly bad, but I've seen some really bad writeups of their polling -- I think as Zogby press releases, in fact -- so I'm not an apologist. But Zogby's telephone track record has been OK.
