....."a tracking poll reports..." This statement is based on a "tracking
poll" (without a printed margin of error - but these generally are + and - 4
%! A large spread) by ABC.

And the article also says: "The overall ABC tracking poll has a slightly
different tilt, with Kerry ahead by 49 to 48 percent".

Here is another "poll" inth e same article and nearly as accurate: "The
poll isn't a scientific sample, but the theory is that it's a good predictor
because kids tend to reflect their parents' views. But a Nickelodeon TV
kiddie poll favored Kerry with 57 percent of the vote."

AND to get an even more accurate picture, look at this article copied from
another post by "Fred":

from the same date in 2000 27 October:

CNN/Time pollCNN) -- Republican presidential nominee George W. Bush
holds a 49-to-43 percent edge over Democratic rival Al Gore in the
latest CNN/Time poll, conducted Wednesday and Thursday.

a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points and

is thus in essential agreement with a CNN/USA Today/Gallup tracking
poll also released Friday. That poll gives Bush a 52 percent-39
percent edge over Gore.

More important, both polls show the same snapshot of the current
state of the presidential campaign: a solid advantage for Bush.
ABC News and The Washington Post both have daily tracking polls today
putting the race at 48 percent for Bush and 45 percent for
