Polls Are Stupid: Gallup Weekly Tracking Poll Now Has Democrats and GOP Tied

So the latest Gallup Weekly Tracking Poll is out! 

I bet you could assume that after last week's results showing Democrats 10 POINTS down, this week's poll would show similar or even worse results right?

Um....Not really.

Poll Question:

"Now, turning to this year's congressional elections -- If the elections for Congress were being held today, which party's candidate would you vote for in your congressional district: the Democratic Party's candidate or the Republican Party's candidate?" If other/unsure/refused: "As of today, do you lean more toward the Democratic Party's candidate or the Republican Party's candidate?"

                                           Democratic candidate      Republican candidate

8/30 - 9/5/10                           46                                         46

8/23-29/10                             41                                         51 

I hereby predict that the mainstream media will not even mention this poll after they were so quick to hype last week's results to fit into their narrative about a huge number of GOP victories in November.

I'm not saying that it's looking great for Democrats, but this does really make me think that POLLS ARE STUPID.

And like I said earlier, the only polls that matter are the ones on election day so everyone should get in gear and contact their local Organizing for America office and volunteer ASAP.
