  •  Zogby had Kerry winning in a landslide (1+ / 0-)

    the eve of the election. But it was the most bogus polling I ever saw. They polled no more than 50 people in each state and from that they calculated the electoral tally. I have a feeling they might pump the dem numbers late as some kind of subterfuge.

    There are two types of republicans, the rich and the stupid. The rich ones strive to keep the stupid ones stupid and the stupid ones strive to keep the rich ones rich.

    •  To be clear, they weren't "landslide" numbers. (0+ / 0-)

      At least, not the Zogby numbers I remember. Zogby had Kerry winning New Mexico and Iowa, and tied in Florida. Their last national numbers said Bush +1.

      The really crazy numbers were the Zogby/WSJ polls from the late summer that had Kerry ahead in Arkansas, Tennessee, and West Virginia.

      Compassion is not weakness, and concern for the unfortunate is not socialism.

      •  The poll I'm thinking had (0+ / 0-)

        him winning Ohio 60-40 with a sample size of about 35. And winning either Idaho or Utah with ss of about 15. Overall it had Kerry taking about 350 EVs and I remember this poll being the talk of the morning shows on election day.

        There are two types of republicans, the rich and the stupid. The rich ones strive to keep the stupid ones stupid and the stupid ones strive to keep the rich ones rich.
