Well, there's that…

…I'm sure. Steve Soto...
Sure, my fellow bloggers will say that it is only July August, and these polls don’t matter yet. And they would be wrong.
Some will doubtless say just that, and they will, indeed, be wrong. These polls don't matter yet.

They don't matter ever, actually.

Can we stop, already, with the hand wringing over the ups and downs of national polls that are busy tracking the opinions of an imaginary electorate? Is there an electoral college projection anywhere (my favorite is here) that doesn't show an formidable, if not insurmountable, advantage for Obama? Like it or don't, that's how presidents are chosen.

There's a lot of campaign to go, of course, but things have actually gone very well up to this point, recent blips and slips notwithstanding.

Breathe deeply and keep working.
