"WASHINGTON (AP) - The presidential race tightened after the final debate, with John McCain gaining among whites and people earning less than $50,000, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that shows McCain and Barack Obama essentially running even among likely voters in the election homestretch.

As liberal as the AP is in their reports makes me wonder if they're publishing the wrong information hoping McCain-Palin will let up on their campaigning.

However, political polls like any poll or survey can be skewed in favor of the pollster/surveyor.

They take into account target demographics which are easily accessible in order to make any poll or survey reflect their desired outcome.

Valid reason why I place no credibility whatsoever in polls.
