Gallup Polls - Don't Believe the Hype

You know those Gallup polls that show Bush in a 8-12 point lead over Kerry? They are statistical nonsense. As this interview and article explains, the poll is only taking into account a voter turnout of 39% Republican and 34% Democrat. Why? Because that was the breakdown in the last election.

In other words, those polls that show Bush and Kerry in a dead heat? Believe them.
