While I truly believe that presidential polls are not to be trusted, I also agree that as indicated in the latest Zogby poll, this race is neck and neck with only 40 days to go. I am resigned to the fact that its gonna come down to the last two weeks in Florida, and a tie in the electorial college is not out of the question:
The race for President of the United States continued to tighten during the last two weeks, as President Bush continued his long, hard slog back toward parity with Democratic challenger John Kerry, throwing the race into a virtual dead heat, the latest package of polls by Zogby Interactive shows.
Neither Mr. Bush nor Mr. Kerry holds a clear-cut lead in enough states to win the Electoral College votes required to capture the White House. Based on individual polls conducted simultaneously Sept. 13-17 in 20 battleground states.
Two states remain too close to call: Florida (no surprise) and Arkansas…Missouri and Nevada have moved from the undecided category into the Bush camp…Colorado also moved, albeit slightly, from the Kerry column to the Bush column…The closeness of the race, as shown in this report, gives rise to that most intriguing of parlor game questions
