Further thoughts

I don't understand headlines like this, from FoxNews:

FOX News Poll: Dems Top GOP by 13 Points in Race to Control Congress

Aren't these local and state elections? What possible valid conclusions can we draw from national and regional polls, at least as it pertains to Congressional elections? I think a lot of people will be surprised tomorrow.

I might be completely wrong, but the last 3 national elections (2000, 2002, & 2004) have been proof that actual voter behavior is a mercurial thing. Instapundit agrees.

Michael Barone has some excellent analysis (READ THIS if you read anything).


On the lighter side, Eric Snider has a very funny column on the current state of political discourse.
