Poll Watch - Why the Polls May Not Matter

Why the Polls May Not Matter

Only the polls at election day count. And those are already in the bag, isn't it Diebold ? -- law

Ronald Brownstein writes in his Los Angeles Times column: "Every White House says the president isn't concerned about his polls. In Bush's case that actually seems true."

The lack of unease "reflects a political calculation among Bush's strategists. In their eyes, mass opinion doesn't matter as much as the attitude of the voters motivated to turn up on election day. As long as the president pleases his base, strategists believe they can produce an electorate that is more sympathetic to Bush and the GOP than the country is generally."
