I've noticed from here in the UK that the polls have got closer again. Here polling here has been inaccurate in recent elections to the point of the pollsters holding an inquiry as to what went wrong with their predictions after the previous election. From a UK perspective (which might not work in the US) if I was Hilary I'd want to be at least 5 or 10% ahead at this point. The reason is that we have a phenomenon called 'shy Tories'. People who are fed up (often with what they see as perceived unfairness with things such as social security and benefits policies etc) will tell anyone who asks that they are going to vote for the socially acceptable candidate or party (to be polite and avoid arguments I guess) and then actually vote the other way in the anonymity of the ballot booth. Is such a thing going to happen today?
