I don't get all my news from "The Daily Show," but last night's appearance by pollster John Zogby (the only guy who got it right four years ago) had me making late night phone calls to friends.
Jon Stewart asked Zogby who is going to win and he said, "Kerry," without equivocating. His reason? Bush is not polling high enough for an incumbent. In fact, as Zogby said, if the election were between "Bush" and "Not Bush," "Not Bush" would win going away. "Not Bush" might even beat Kerry.
Of course, a lot of the polls say something else.
But this election has raised so many questions about the whole art/science of polling . . . and the rollercoaster ride is so anxiety-producing . . . and, anyway, I'm not going to change my vote or the passion behind it . . . And so I'm officially adopting this strategy through Tuesday:
I only believe polls that make me feel better.
