    You would think that having Gallup blow three elections in a row would change media perception, but, I'm not sure.  Like you say, using Gallup is like quoting the S&P or the Dow Jones average. It's an old standby that everybody recognizes, whether they adapt to new times or not.

    By quoting a Gallup poll, nobody but the polling cognescenti are going to question you. But, if CBS or PBS started quoting Rand Life Panel or Google Analytics the right in particular would jump up and down and scream that they are using "junk" polls!! Never mind that both Rand & Google basically nailed this election in the head-to-head numbers.
