I came across an interesting tidbit at The Trail (WaPo):
In today’s Post-ABC tracking poll, Obama is winning 22 percent of conservatives. That’s his best showing yet among these voters, and if the percent holds on Election Day, it would be higher than conservative support for any Democratic nominee since 1980.
Obama also wins 12 percent support among Republicans in the tracking poll — exactly double Kerry’s 2004 Election Day haul.
I haven’t paid much attention to polls, other than noticing general trends. For all I know (since they never call me), the pollsters are plucking numbers from thin air. But I do believe there are real people underlying this one.
In fact, I know there are.
