  •  Angus-Reid is tops so far (0+ / 0-)

    Followed by the 3% margins predicted by ABC/WaPo, Pew, Rand and Hartford Courant.   But give it a few weeks and Democracy Corps might vault to the top with the 4% margin.  Heck, how about National Journal's 5% margin?   That might just be within reach.  Ironically, the National Journal is a right-wing rag, so them showing Obama edging Romney shortly before election day by 5% should have been a tip-off to the likes of Rove, Barone, Noonan and Morris that their  "god and guts" driven predictions were hollow and unrealistic.    Oh well, more Schadenfreude for us now, eh?  

    •  I don't read the Journal but (0+ / 0-)

      I think you may be thinking of the National Review. My impression of the National Journal is that it is more bipartisan or nonpartisan, and some articles excerpted on the site here have indicated that.

    •  Pew & ABC/WAPO (0+ / 0-)

      get more credit for being closer to the final results and not just the final margin. But for being closest to the margin Rand is leading right now.
