    So... it would appear the mutton head odumbo supporters here that think all these "SCIENTIFIC" polls are so damn great, well, guess this just makes them look pretty dumb...



    Gallup polling today put Obama ahead of Mitt Romney by 4 points after the godless DNC Convention.

    Back in 1980 Gallup had Jimmy Carter up over Ronald Reagan by 4 points in mid to late September… And, Carter was up 8 points in October. In fact there was a published Gallup poll showing Carter up six among likely voters in a poll conducted Oct. 24 to 27.

    Ronald Reagan ended up winning by 9 points and taking 44 states.

    The purpose of polls is not to tell you what's going to happen 2 months from now, they are designed to tell you where things are now,

    and they are very good at doing that.

    In post #1 you are saying that polls have no predictive value.

    In this post you saying, one guy, Michael Moore, has predictive value.

    Which is it?

    You're the idiot who started the thread about the internet poll and claimed it proved Romney was going to win.

    Go home and get your head on straight.

    I would question any gallup poll stats since obama's DOJ sued them for poll numbers that favored Romney over obama.
