I know Zogby is much derided around here but, neverthless:

Although no fan of Zogby, I'm most surprised that Kohl is only up by 0.8%!
And why in the world isn't he polling RI or MT?

Having trouble getting into his poll, but I think the WI poll is because for some reason beyond the realm of even normal stupidity he is only polling Kohl against Thompson someone who isn't even running.

The first part of your sentence makes the second a non-sequitor.  Smiley

Again, see your first sentence.

Washington - believable
Nevada - believable
Arizona - Kyl has to be up more than that
New Mexico - believable
Texas - believable
Minnesota - much as I'd like to believe it, I can't see Klobuchar being up by that much. She's certainly ahead though.
Missouri - believable but contradicting other polls
Tennessee - believeable
Florida - believable
Wisconsin - believable but pointless. Thompson is not running.
Michigan - believable
Ohio - a bit too strong for DeWine
Virginia - Allen should be doing better
New York - believable
Pennsylvania - believable
New Jersey - believable
Maryland - believable

Most are accurate, but those are the easy to predict ones, and the incorrect ones are so far off it makes you doubt the accuracy on a whole. In the end not really worth paying too much attention to.

Kohl is only up by 0.8% because Zogby, being retarded, polled him against Tommy Thompson, which is not happening.

Ohio - a bit too strong for DeWine

Don't you mean for Brown?  DeWine is down nearly 9 points in the poll.

I would hope that is what he meant......DeWine is probably holding on to a small lead right now.

Rememeber Zogby had Tenn. as a tossup for most of 2004.

I'm going to cut and paste my rant from the other thread, since it applies here also.

Here's the reason.  I can halfway trust his phone polls, because I'm sure he conducts phone polls like everyone else.

His internet polls derive from a self-selected group.  It is essentially those people who sign up for his polls on the Internet.  We can see the people this type of method will tend to favor and the type of people it won't.  His survey is full of those people who are super-interested in politics (typically partisans) and have Internet access and who also know who in the hell John Zogby is.  People it would leave out are those who not figured in this list.

I am actually one of those people who took this poll.  Not that I care about the results, mind you, but as you can see I fit the description perfectly.

They are the "internets" ones.

Anything that has Zogby Interactive in its name is an Internet poll.

I agree. Too many of those aren't consistent with other polls we have been seeing.

Not the Zogby internet polls again.  Is Kerry still holding that small lead in Tennessee?
