    This is great news. Just what we needed. Thanks for posting.

    Gallup had me rattled.

    I post, therefore I am.

    •  Gallop has me highly irritated. (0+ / 0-)

      You know Tom, not a numbers gal. My pals are amused how much I follow the polls and study them---as knowing me, they think I'm more likely to get into bungee jumping.  

      One thing I've learned is that if polls are going to drive the narrative, as they are like never before, you better know your polls and at LEAST understand enough to protect yourself from any meme not built on a solid foundation.

      I'm no Nate Silver, but for me, knowing some of the ins and outs of various polls, and understanding the basic language of polls, has saved me many a sweating woman.

      One thing I'm pretty sure of, is that the GOP has it's slimy hand AND money in the polling structure, and the Democrats better catch up.
