    I think the difference usually comes down to how you define "likely voters." Very often Democrats lead in "overall" polls, then their lead narrows when you ask if responders are registered voeters, and narrows even further, or comes out in favor of Republicans when you try to determine who's actually likely to vote. So the differences most often reflect how the "likely voter" determination is made.

    Which only goes to show once again that Kerry should be spending less time trying to sway the undecided voters and more time trying to get people to understand what is at stake in this election. In the end, it's going to be about turnout.
