    Why?
    If you have 10 polls, 9 of them are inaccurate and skewed and one that is accurate then you would be a fool to aggregate them in hopes of getting a more accurate reading.
    Then again....

    So now the polls are accurate that Obama's lead has narrowed?

    So they were accurate before and the election was in the bag for Obama?

    The polls are largely meaningless at this point. Many conservative posters have mentioned this numerous times. It is the leftists here who harp on polls whenever Obama is ahead and dismiss them as biased when he is behind.

    He's not behind in the Electoral Map which is what is used. You'll get quite an education on 11/6. You need one.

    Obama was not the one who needed a bounce ... the Electoral Map is just fine for Nov. 6th.
