Gallup is the only national poll in which Hillary is not ahead of Giuliani. Gallup needs to revise its methodology. A couple of months ago they had Obama leadinig Hil by 1 pt, also putting Gallup at odds with the rest of pollsters.

In reports over the last few years I believe they have several things in their methodology that leads to more variable results resulting in more chances for an less expected result to get headlines.

At first I thought their variances with other polls was due to conservative Christian ownership slanting results but now think it is from something in their methodology. They only slant the headlines.

It would be nice to see if someone had looked into Gallup results compared to others. Oh, the mystery pollster thought their likely voter model was to blame.

Guliani seems to have a stake in selling us out.He is behind some things I don't like.Check out our hiways and see.He wants mexican trucking companies to transport goods thoughout the US and that will hurt American truck drivers.
Why don't we all just lie down and die so our politicans can hire nothing but illegals to run this country.
