    What in particular do you think drives their accuracy and thus credibility ?

    I look at the ubiquity of polls as being on the level of psychics. Make enough predictions about the future fate of celebrities and you will get lucky once in a while. Then hype the hits and don't mention the misses.

    There is only one poll I care about; the voting booth.

    It is hard to say right now. I have only been following it for a couple weeks. A guy in my office told me about it and the uncanny accuracy in the past. If you read his methodolgy, it may give you and idea of the factors that he uses. Here is his methodology:

    Agreed.

    As we can see the numbers continue to trend toward the president.

    Obama: EC votes: 290.8, Romney: 247.2.

    And the president’s chances of winning are back above 70 percent, at 70.3.

    Most importantly, Obama continues to maintain a lead in Ohio, where the polling average gives the president a 48.2 percent to 45.3 percent advantage over Romney.

    Im a huge Obama supporter however, I thought PA was leaning aggressively Romney as of late. This poll has it close to locked up for Obama.
