    And? There are numerous polls out there. Drudge chooses to only show the ones that have the lowest ratings because he's in the tank for McCain.

    Individual polls, even those that are on the up and up, aren't, I think, evidence of much.

    But if, collectively from among those polls that we have reason to think are on the up and up, we see a consistent pattern of outcomes, then one is probably safe in assuming they are telling us something real.

    I'd say since the trend is over 2 weeks, it's 'real.' 10 Pts? Who knows.

    As I said, it's real. How much? We'll know in a few weeks.

    As stated SO many times.... polls mean squat... only 1 poll matters and that is the election itself
