I'm sick of the polls too. And you can make them indicate anything you want if you twist them enough. But take the time to read this post over at Brilliant at Breakfast. Instead of actual numbers of the minute, it analyzes how these polls generally break come election day, and trends among undecided voters. Here's a portion.

"According to Real Clear Politics, which regularly fishes for pro-Bush polls, Bush is under 47.5 in states worth 277 electoral votes. It will be very difficult for him to win any of these states, including Ohio where he rarely travels anymore. He is under 49 in states worth 316 electoral votes, and over 50 in states worth only 202 electoral votes."
