In the past hour I did Charles Adler’s radio show, and then I talked to some campaigning friends, and I just got off the line with a journalist pal. Everyone is buzzing about the latest poll, or the latest seat projection, or whatever. After careful reflection, here is the position I have reached:
THE POLLS ARE ALL OVER THE MAP, AND HAVE BEEN FOR WEEKS. THE SEAT PROJECTIONS ARE BASED ON CONTRADICTORY POLLS, AND ARE THEREFORE A JOKE.
I accordingly give up. At this point, the only poll that matters – as the old saying goes – is the one May 2.
