No, Tamhas, none of it.

The polls shockingly, without notice, prior to the debate, on NOTHING, SUDDENLY, go closer as October got here. I told you all along they were wrong, and biased, and I believe often on purpose. So don't give me an average of such polls.

This pollster, Suffolk University, one of the premier polling outfits, a man and his institution that has put his reputation and possible career on the line, and he says, using pre-debate numbers (much less post debate) that NC, VA, and FL are Romneys. No need to poll anymore in those states.

He may prove wrong, but don't give me an average of faulty polls as a counter. The trend is the key in these things, and there is no clearer indication as to what is happening than what Suffolk poll has stated and revealed. Pulling out of these swing states in October! His career is dead if he is wrong, and he said it without a bead of sweat. Waste of time to continue polling there.

But you know, go with your survey of polls, that like the October jobs report, suddenly and shockingly changed.

Sorry, we are not that stupid.

No, Suffolk is not the end all, and I don't concede any of these states to Romney yet, but it SAYS MORE THAN ANY OF YOUR RHETORIC AND DATA DOES if you want an indication of where the actual polls are that a man put his career and reputation on the line like this, and has no doubt at all about it.

There are millions of pieces of data out there, but only a small percentage of this data means anything at al (same with stocks. They key is finding those bits. Something I am good at (or at least use to be quite profound at).
