Zogby’s Sick of Being a Pollster. He Wants to Be a Pundit.

posted by on April 16 at 9:52 AM

Or so it would seem from this kooky analysis:

Obama pulled into a statistical tie with McCain at 45 percent after trailing him by 6 points last month. Clinton trails McCain by 5 points, 46 percent to 41 percent, gaining slightly from an 8-point deficit last month.

“Obama still does better than Clinton against McCain, but it’s a very close race either way,” pollster John Zogby said. “Obama and Clinton hurt each other the longer their race drags on, and McCain is getting a free pass.”

Uh, good job reading the data you collected, dude. Clinton and Obama both improved with respect to McCain, and you think that’s a sign that a prolonged primary is hurting them?

Off topic: Did Steve Scher just address Archbishop Desmond Tutu as “Arch”? I believe he did.

Looks like Zogby's not very good at being a pundit either.
