What Should a Junkie Do?

Mystery Pollster offers much needed help to Political Wire readers: "So what are we to make of polling, given that it allows for a wide variance of results at this point in the election?"

Some would urge you not to pay any attention (see this excellent Christian Science Monitor piece), "but if you’re reading this, the odds are good you’re a political crack-head like me, long ago decided and badly addicted to following each twist and turn of the campaign."

We explored some of the reasons for the poll disparities earlier, but the best advice may be to remember "that the election will not be held today, that many voters are still considering their choices and that their answers to the horse-race question today may mislead us about what they are likely to do on November 2."
