Poll Disclaimers

Drudge is showing 3 polls, one of which has Obie winning by 3. The others show R by 1-2. So I followed the link:
The 50-47 percent difference is not statistically significant at the customary confidence levels used in survey research. But it’s likelier than not to reflect a slight Obama advantage, given this survey’s models of who’s most apt to vote.
Translation: This poll was conducted in such a way as to show Obama winning and is otherwise not to be trusted.

Well O.K. then.
