1. when were these polls taken?
All these all from the same period form different organizations? And do you have any interpretation of this you'd like to share?

3. Thanks.
I agree there was some major funny business going on. I just wish we had some proof.

11. What I "Liked"
Has nothing to do with it. Personally, the only ones I liked and cared about were those that showed us within the margin of error in Florida and Ohio, or even ahead.

But your work is.... garbage..... on these. You use ONLY those polls that back up the point you're trying to make, and ignore all the others. As long as you just CHOOSE to include certain ones that you prefer, your graph has to be dismissed as junk.

You've done some good work on this board- but this isn't some of it. This is an intentionally dishonest representation of the polls that existed.

12. You are intentionally presumptive. You dare question my poll selection?
That one really takes the cake.

UnbeCheneybelievable.

You have anything against my using Zogby or ARG or anyone else?

You have anything against my weighted poll trend which showed Kerry ahead by ONE lousy percent?

Do you have a problem with my projection that Kerry would win with 51.8%? TooCheneyBad.

Anyone reading your comments here will totally disregard anything you may say in the future.

Who are you? The Poll Police?

God, what is this world coming to?

Desperate is not a strong enough word.

13. Yes, I "dare" question your poll selection.
It's VERY obvious that you selected them for one reason- to show a specific result that you wanted to show.

I have no problem with Zogby, ARG, or any other specific poll. But when you start choosing one poll for one state, and another for another state, with the selection criteria based solely on "Shows Kerry in the best light", you lose all credibility.

So, if you're going to represent poll results, do so consistently.
