Z For Zogby
By Ed Driscoll · October 28, 2004 11:23 AM · The Making of the President
Pollster John Zogby was the first to say that the election was Kerry's to lose, way back in April. Of course, there are reasons why Zogby would be pulling for Kerry: they're both on the left-hand side of the aisle, and they both prefer dictatorial status quo over liberating and reforming the Middle East.
So it's pretty surprising to read this from Bob Novak:
Pollster John Zogby surprised the political world back in April with a long-range prediction that John Kerry would defeat George W. Bush for president. On Monday this week, Zogby told me, he changed his mind. He now thinks the president is more likely to be re-elected because he has reinforced support from his base, including married white women.If Zogby now thinks President Bush will win, he just may do so decisively. And he may very well have some coattails behind him. As Jayson of PoliPundit notes via this remarkable quote:
"No one with any [political] knowledge . . . . would believe the assumptions made by Zogby."More on Thune, Daschle and Zogby from Power Line.
Teetotaling Update: The Bush camp seems to agree with Zogby's prognosis.
Absolut-Infused Update: Stephen Green also notes Zogby's change of heart.

What They're Saying
"Well, art is art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west, and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce, they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now, uh... Now you tell me what you know."--Groucho Marx
