Why are Republicans concerned about the polls?

If Obama has a 7-point lead right now it just means he’ll be behind 2 or 3 points on election day. Just Google “Kerry leads Bush” and you’ll find all kinds of examples where Kerry was ahead of Bush. I don’t think there’s any reason to panic with more than a month left before election day.  I think Americans are smart enough to figure out who they can tie to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, especially since Obama is the second largest recipient of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae campaign contributions after just 3 years in the Senate.

Update (10/16): Ann Coulter, obviously more talented than me, pulls up a whole lot of examples where the polls favored Democrats significantly before election day and were wrong when all was said and done.

    The only polling that counts is the poll taken at the voting botth on November 4th. Until then it is all conjecture.

    Back then I remember a lot of people thought that a strange message from Osama bin Laden shook people up and gave Bush a surge in support just before election day. I don’t know how true that is, but maybe Ahmadinejad or Osama (if he’s still alive) will give Obama a nice endorsement at the end of this month. :D

    Here’s an article written back in 2000 saying that there’s no way Bush can beat Gore, “I mean, just look at the polls!”

    Yep. It all depends on voter turn-out. I guess Obama’s supporters are fired up, but you’d think with our fears about Obama’s character our side would be pretty fired up, too.
