Rather have Zogby saying this than ARG, I'll say that.

"Other" is still way too high. Who is really on the ballot on Tuesday ? Letīs wait for SurveyUSA and PPP tomorrow. Iīd say Clinton wins IN by 8, Obama NC by 12.

.....and Zogby had Ohio at 44-44.

.....and don't forget Zogby's famous last minute call for President Kerry.  Over 300 electoral votes for President elect Kerry.  Zogby's 5:00 2004 election day call conveniently right after he got a look at the now famous and crappy exit polls on Drudge.  The man is an absolute joke.

he rode 2000 as long as he could until he became a complete fool in 2004.  How bout those Colorado and Virginia surprises in 2004 Zog.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day - and a broken clock is about what the planet Zogby organization reminds me of.

Zogby was actually pretty good in 2004 until he took in those exit polls.  That was a big mistake.  Zogby is often inaccurate but the best thing about his style is his daily tracking numbers right before the election.  Regardless of how good his margin is, it usually detects which way voters are breaking.  So I usally read other pollsters for the margin, and then add which way Zogby says voters are breaking. 

Not always a perfect strategy but, hey.

It wasn't just a big mistake.  I was totally unprofessional and permanently damaged any credibility he had left.

Zogby has always been much worse at general election polls than primary polls.  And he was actually doing pretty well in this cycle up until Super Tuesday.....when his polling suddenly starting going crazy.

Let me correct this statement:

Zogby has always been much worse at making guesses about general election polls than primary polls.  And he was actually doing pretty well getting pretty lucky in this cycle up until Super Tuesday.....when his polling guessing mechanism suddenly starting going crazy started giving results that he wanted to hear.

Well, and there's always New Hampshire...
