Why are national tracking polls still being taken, given that most of the states have already voted? It is nonsensical to ask people their candidate preference when the primary/caucus has already come and gone in their state. What could be the possible relevance of asking a Democrat in NY, IL, or CA who they think should get the nomination? We have actual vote tallies in hand from those states. Is there some precedent for backward looking polls that ask people which candidate they prefer when their election is in fact already over?

Yes, however for those states still to vote, it shows favor for one or another candidate. I think it's just as important to keep this one up as well as the "who is more likely to win against McCain" polls also.
Anything that can further inform even a small percentage of voters, I am in favor of.

Listen everyone. Hers an example. I've been preaching about homework and reaserch. As a delegate, I have been going over a ton of voting records and attendence records from the floor of the Senate. My vote represents thousands, so its the least I should do. Lets look at one that was very popular. A bill to amend title XXI of the social security act to extend and improve the childrens health insurance program, or otherwise known as H.R. 3963 vote 00401. this vote took place on oct 31st 2007. How do you think Sen. Clinton voted you guessed it YEA. How do you think Sen. Obama voted, well he didn't vote. He wasn't in attendence. He was to busy doing a spot on SNL. this bill was vetoed by Pres. Bush. The fact of the matter is Sen. Obama didn't feel that vote was important enough to show up for. If Congress had enough votes to override that veto, the motion and bill would have been successful. But it didn't. The record DOES speek for itself.
Please do your reaserch.
