  •  I smell sour grapes. (0+ / 0-)

    What's the matter, are you disappointed just because the polls are showing your preferred candidate doing poorly?  If it was just one or even two polls, you might have a point.  However, this isn't just one or two unreliable polls from an unreliable source.  Remember that it was Zogby whose work helped expose the vote fraud by the GOP in 2004.

    What would you have posted, I wonder, if Zogby's online polls had shown Billary kicking butt?  I suspect you'd be touting Zogby as a genius.

    •  Actually his "preferred candidate" is beating (0+ / 0-)

      all GOP candidates according to the poll Kos was mentioning in his thread

        Rassmussen: Giuliani beating Clinton 52% to 43%

        Granted, that was from back in February, but let's look at how things stand now:

        Giuliani vs Clinton vs Thompson

        The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) enjoying a modest four-point lead of 46% to 42% over Senator Hillary Clinton (D) (see crosstabs). That’s the second time in the last three Rasmussen Reports election polls that Giuliani has held the advantage over Clinton.

        The survey also found Clinton with a very slight edge over former Senator Fred Thompson (R), 46% to 44%. Both Republicans are doing better against Clinton than they did in the previous Rasmussen Reports survey.

        Since April, Giuliani has led Clinton several times in Rasmussen Reports national polling, but usually by no more than three percentage points. In mid-August he led by seven, but by September he was trailing. On October 9 Giuliani trailed Clinton 41% to 48%. In the next poll he managed to edge out Clinton by two points, but on November 11 he was again trailing, by six (see history).

        When you boil it all down, it's either a statistical dead heat or a slight advantage over Clinton.  Live in denial all you want, but if Clinton takes the Democratic nomination don't go whining when the GOP successfully steals yet another election out from under us.
