This should drive the right wingers nuts.
So basically a lot of people are pretty dumb. Great.
Only a fool trusts a politician.

The right wing pays about as much attention to Politico news as left wingers do to Fox news. They bascially think its a propoganda agency.

Your previous posts would show quite the opposite.

You seem to agree with poll numbers only when they suit your viewpoint.

I agree with Pauly C but then again I am more of an independant than a card carrying member of the Repubs or Democrats. So go ahead and believe the polls..just remember where these pollsters get their funding from.

Yes indeed - Rasmissen always skews to the Right when compared to the other major polls.

Like you, I prefer RCP (where they summerize all the major polls to come up with a "poll of polls" result). Such results tend to be much less volitile and much more stable and accurate in my opinion.

Agreeing with others of likemind is called "the human condition". Try to get over yourself.
