Polls polls and more polls

Drudge has the SHOCKING POLL RESULTS: McCain leads 48-47 in last day's results. Polls are polls, they should all be taken with a lot of grains of salt.

But it is interesting what Zogby writes about this particular poll:

McCain outpolled Obama today, 48% to 47%. He is beginning to cut into Obama's lead among independents, is now leading among blue collar voters, has strengthened his lead among investors and among men, and is walloping Obama among NASCAR voters.

Really? McCain is winning among NASCAR voters, and this is somehow newsworthy. Not long ago according to the same polls, he was tied with Obama for the NASCAR vote.

I guess it depends on what you define as a NASCAR voter. If it's anyone who has heard of NASCAR, then yeah OK, I suppose it would be even. If it's someone who can name you 3 drivers, I'd say the breakdown is about 60/40 against Obama. If it's someone who has attended a race or two, I'd wager it is 80/20 against Obama. The idea that a quasi-Muslim, anti-war, anti-military, anti-gun socialist from Chicago of all places, was winning over the NASCAR vote was and is ridiculous. The fact that anyone took that notion seriously just goes to show how out of touch the MSM is with reality. If any of these pollsters or members of the MSM would actually attend a race, or you know, talk to someone who attends races, they might clue in a little to the realities of the world. Instead they sit in their office in NY and think hmmm Obama is so wonderful he must even be converting the NASCAR fans to his cult.

Which is why as always, it is best to disbelieve everything from the MSM, including poll results.
