Analysis:

Incredible jumps in some polls.  Monmouth jumped ten points.  Fox
jumped seven points.  CNN jumped five point.  Drops were much less
giving the highest poll since September.  We are encouraged at the
number of polls as well.  The more polls, the more accurate we can
be.
However, it is disturbing to see such a wide range of polls with a
ten point difference between the top and bottom.  The last time we
saw such a question mark was when President Obama won by a percentage
that was outside the margin of error on most of the polls.  If they
are accurate, that should never happen in a week period.
