They were right!!

So, it seems the folks over at 21st Century polling were right on the money!  They have been posting polling numbers that vastly differed from most straw and gallop polls.  Eventually those polls would catch up to 21st Century's, so I guess online polling seems to more accurately predict. 

When mainstream media was posting Kerry with a slight lead before election night, 21st was posting Bush (in previous entries here... somewhere).   This is how they predicted last nights drama would unfold:      

     Here is what we found. After balancing all of these factors:  
cell phone users, other third parties, and undecided, below is  
our prediction for the NATIONAL numbers:  

************** Bush  .... 51% of the national vote  
************** Kerry .... 47% of the national vote  
************** Nader ....  1% of the national vote  
************** OTHER ....  1% of the national vote  
   

I am impressed......

I was following their polling and taking their polls and getting their emails.  I am very impressed by them, also.

I am very disappointed that 59 million people are still living with their heads in the sand like ostriches!
