Why the Polls are Wrong

... because they only question each person once.

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Mississippi's voter situation is hard to believe. Places like Madison County have over 123% more registered voters than people over the age of 18.

Sue Sautermeister, First District Election Commissioner in Madison County, tried to purge the rolls, but ran into trouble when it was discovered it takes a vote of three of the five election commissioners and the purge cannot take place within 90 days of a federal election.
I predict that Obama will win 108% of the vote.

I just got back from a trip to FL. On the morning radio they gave the results from an exit poll of early voters. 49% McCain, 45% Obama, 6% Undecided.

Yes, you read that right AFTER voting 6% were unsure about who they will (did?) vote for.

Given that kind of result, I don't think there is any reason to think that polls are terribly accurate.

OH OH my word is "excorin". To have stopped coring apples.

Everyone I hear from 'on the ground' says the same thing - very very tight, many, many people NOT for Obama. There's HOPE!
