Now that's more like it! I was getting bored with the consistent polling showing McCain leading. This is good news for the repub base. It will get htem fired up some more. Gotta love a good fight. It will be fun to watch you libs jump all over this one!

Interesting that when this poll was done in August it showed at 5% McCain lead (during a period where Obama was generally up), I don't know if that means there was significant movement towards Obama, or if the poll is of questionable validity.

This is Zogby, people. I wouldn't denounce it completely but I wouldn't rank it very high either. If "Obama people" denounced this pollster when McCain was in the lead there's no reason to embrace this poll now.

JFactor - There are two very different polls in Zogby. The Zogby Interactive stuff is a joke. His phone polls are of pretty average quality, with an occasional knack at picking up a trend everybody else missed.

Ha! I think I heard everything. Now there is a defense against whether or not "Obama People" defend a certain pollster and validate it when it happens to show negative results for McCain.

As if the first assumption wasn't ridiculous enough!

Snowspinner:

Xenobion - They're two totally different methodologies. The Interactive polls are Internet-based polls, and are a joke. Consistently so - they're a joke when they show Obama leading in NC, and they're a joke when they show him losing. They're meaningless.

His phone polls are no worse than anybody else's.

Anyway. Obama supporters hardly need the Zogby numbers to feel good about the day. The PPP Virginia, Time/CNN Ohio, NC, and FL, and trackers provide plenty good news.
