Zogby Poll

Poll analysis, in general, has too much of the whiff of accountancy about it to attract my attention. But indulge me a moment and check out the new Zogby Poll.

The headline bits are now common knowledge: Bush approval sinks to record low, at 42%; Kerry leading 47/42 -- mostly because Bush supporters seem to be shifting into the "undecided" column.

The bit that made my jaw drop, however, was this one:
In the Blues States, those that were won by former Vice-President Al Gore in the 2000 presidential election, Kerry receives 49.1% of support, as compared to Bush with 38.4%. In Red States Kerry and Bush are in a statistically [sic] tie with 45% a piece.

This may yet turn into a Kerry landslide. (But don't get complacent.)
