I think he said Kerry would have 311 electoral votes.
Zogby... the Jason Blair of polling.
Zogby has lost all credibility except for democrats who want to be filled with bogus information.
Media Schadenfreude and Media Shenanigans PING
He is spinning like a top. If he was so accurate, why did he call Keryr getting 311 EVs at 5:30pm Tuesday?

Statement from John Zogby on 2004 Presidential Election Results (CYA spin) ^
That's ok. You'll still have some Freepers harping how Zogby is the most accurate pollster around despite the evidence.
At 5 pm on election day he had Florida and Ohio going to Kerry. I mean who does he think he's fooling. falling into the right result once gave him a sense of his own importance that's been completely refuted. The guy's junk.
He has the accuracy of Dan Rather.
I have this day emailed Mr Zogby and informed him that his credibility as a pollster resides on the trash heap of history.
LOL, this guy called every key state wrong. So he was "within the margin of error" - I could have thrown a dart at a list of numbers and been just as accurate.
At 5.00 pm Zogby was on his way to the Kerry celebration.
Is that like being "the most honest lawyer around"?
I was just thinking of that line when I was wondering about his fate. Sweet.
Anyone who cant hit within +/- 4 (thats an 8 POINT SPREAD folks) should not be charging money for polling
There are lies, damnable lies, statistics, and now zogby polls.
We need to use his name as the left has used Senator McCarthy's.
Zogbyism will forever more be the term for a leftist media snowjob designed to sway public opinion.
example: "The Zogbyism in this campaign almost gave John Kerry an unearned victory."
