  •  Well if you berate a Ras poll showing decline (0+ / 0-)

    you can hardly cheer when Ras shows a Strickland bumb like it did in March. And you did cheer then. You said it "proved" something.

    Fact is, you only interpret polls in relation to your wishes -- polls that accord you with your desires are good, not in accord bad.

    You make polling meaningless, a meer cheering excercise.

    Some of us actually analyze polls, and when you do in this race, it shows Strickland falling from a 30 point lead in February 2009, to a 5 point deficit today.

    The Strickland bump during the spring, when Fisher dominated TV ad spending, was totally meaningless in the course of things.

    But you're so confused you continue to cheer for the man who did in Brunner's campaign.

    •  I don't credit ANY Ras polls (0+ / 0-)

      Rasmussen has a clear narrative-setting agenda that has been well outlined here, that shows up even in their choice of what they poll and when.

      Strickland is surging and there's nothing you can do about it except move to Kentucky.

      Time to garden and kick Republican ass.
