    Even with the plethora of dubious polling the polling average will still hold up in most cases. I'd advise making calls based on particular pollsters only when the race is so close as to make it necessary.

      A new SurveyUSA poll finds Republican Gov. Sam Brownback trailing state House Democratic Leader Paul Davis by a brutal 48-40, with a Libertarian taking five. SurveyUSA found similar numbers a month ago, when they found Davis up by six points. Brownback has posted some bad numbers before, but never quite this bad.
