This morning had The Chuck being honest and assertive when giving his take on the Gallup Tracking Poll. He finds them to be bunk and said later on Hardball that no poll holds water (barring a mishap from either camp) until the day after the first debate.
He also brought up a hell of a side-note to all of this that hopefully other news organizations will run with, that Obama's field is being under-sampled. The Chuck reported this fact is causing great uneasiness amongst Republican pollsters. A new perspective and elegantly simple point when you imagine who is sitting home by the phone available to be asked questions: older voters. Otherwise known as the segment of the population who don't have caller I.D.
Also, great repartee with Mike Murphy, who appeared to be slightly punchy due to the West Coast time difference. Keep the man punchy; his cake analogy was priceless. Although we all could've done without the Obama/Akaka joke.
