    They may be the worst of the worst (getting a run for their money from the ODU poll).  There was a Nate Silver post specifically explaining why he doesn't just ignore polls (except from JZ Analytics also in the running for worst of the worst) not even the crazy Baydoun Foster poll of Florida.

    Josh Marshall has decided to ignore them (this is rare the ODU poll is the only other case I know of).

    They have had crazy numbers in the past (crazy good for Romney) with Demographically strange samples.  Completely ignoring a datum is extreme, but I personally wasn't worried at all by the Baydoun Foster Michigan poll.

    Are you comforted ?
