Why do I care about polls? It seems like every time a new poll comes out I eagerly check to see how Romney is doing. WHY? The fact of the matter is, the only polls that matter are the polls taken within two weeks of voting.
The general public just doesn't follow politics very closely. The vast majority of Americans are NOT political junkies like myself.
At this point, the polls right now are meaningless. All they are is name recognition polls, not indicators of the state of the race and certainly no indicator for how the race will end.
