Polls is Polls: a year ago today
With a tip of the hat to Taegan Goddard, one year ago today (October 29, 2000), Governor George Bush led Vice President Al Gore by seven points in the Gallup Poll: 49-percent to 42-percent.
Of course, the polls last time do not apply to election. The last election was not entirely an election on Bill Clinton, as Gore wisely ran away from him. In this election, it is a referendum of two versions of President Bush, the President and the media-generated image of the man.
