The Cornfield Eye on the Polls - September 3rd
Between now and the general election on November 6, there are going to be daily, weekly and monthly polls covering almost every contest imaginable. Some are local, some are state and some - actually most - will be on the presidential race.
Until Election Day, I am going to try and give a synopsis of what the pollsters reveal for both voters, candidates and campaigns to chomp and chew. Yes, the only poll that really matters will be on November 6.
With this being the eve of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina and the Monday following the close of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, thought it would be a good time to see how the polling was going for both President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
