I hate it when people cherry pick one poll to support their narrative. i hate it that pollsters write narratives when they release their numbers. A single poll is not all that valuable. That is why 538 and pollster and the other polling sites deal in aggregate polls. one poll is just not reliable enough on its own. the more polls that cluster around a value the more reliable. Picking one lone poll that shows obama tied with mccain in tennessee is not worth reporting on. just stop.
