The Cornfield Eye on the Polls - September 9th
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.
Our last look was a week ago just prior to the start of the Democratic National Convention. The early poll numbers are starting to come in now showing that while Republican Mitt Romney enjoyed about a 1-point bounce, President Barack Obama is experiencing up to at 4-point bounce.
