Polls: (see Dewey Defeats Truman)

I stumbled across this clip yesterday. For those of you who believe polls: I think this was taken a week before the Republican Primary. We all know what happened there. Listen to how foolish the anchor sounds in hindsight (now that we know Paladino defeated Lazio by a 2:1 margin).

Predicting elections is like predicting the weather. Don't you remember the day before the October Storm of 2005, when Don Paul called for overcast skies with a 20% chance of drizzle?
