A new Zogby poll, meaningless as ever

The latest Zogby poll on the governor's race is out, and just as unreliable as the previous ones.

Mark Green and Scott Walker say all the same stuff they said last time, and while they bark, the caravan moves on.

And Tommy's still not running for the Senate.

I agree Zogby's polls are a joke. Most of them are pushed one way or another, it is a shame some much of the actions of politicians are dictated by faulty methodology.

Had the governors race come out with Doyle as the leader would you have criticized or championed Zogby?

Polls really have validity when the differance is stark in the findings.

I believe Doyle will loose on the basis of his veto pen. Particularly with regards to concealed carry and voter Id.

Anyone who endorses photo id to buy over the counter cold medicine but not to vote has a problem convincing the public that he doesn't have something to gain by allowing ineligible people to vote.

Appartently the elderly and poor aren't allowed to get relief form their cold symptoms like most Wisconsinites.

So we agree on Zogby. Polls need to be taken with a grain of salt and then thrown over your left shoulder. If you always assume your guy is behind and campaign with that in mind all will go well. Unfortunately I think polls sometimes hinder the political process by keeping people away from the participating if there guy doesn't look like they have a chance.

Not quite as damaging as slashing tires though.

you think voters put concealed carry and voter id high on their list if important issues? where are you from and who do you talk to? wait, is this senator reynolds?-- well that explains why my gas, utility bills, and health insurance keep going up without any response from the legislature while most americans agree that the government is not responsive to their needs.
