    ....."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":

    Remember 2000...when Gore WON the popular vote by 1/2 million votes?
    from the same date in 2000 27 October:

    CNN/Time poll:(CNN) -- 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.

    The poll of 2,060 adult Americans, including 1,076 likely voters, has
    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

    Gore.http://archives.cnn.com/2000/ALLPOLITICS/stories/10/27/cnntime.poll/ind
