Translation:

'The folks what pay the bills on these polls have a vested interest in making the race seem as close as possible, so we use whatever we feel will keep it looking close. We do this all in the interest of 'Fairness', of course'

I'm interested in how their registered-v-likely classifications break out by party, income class and age, among other parameters.

The problem with any national poll is that if the pool of respondents doesn't fairly represent the population on a state by state basis, it's meaningless. Even then the polling might not predict the electoral votes. I'm going to LMAO if Obama wins the election with fewer popular votes than Mc894Of899.
