Libloggers and Polls

I must say that I am mildly amused by the disdain with which the Gandalf Group's poll is being treated by bloggers who usually have so much to say if their candidates gets the slightest positive press. The most unscientific of 'polls' are cited as 'proof' that Kennedy, Dion, Rae, Iggy will win the leadership. Even Cerberus is trashing this poll, saying he doesn't put much faith in polls. However, he does 'validate' it by saying it shows Iggy is WAY ahead of the others (it does? I must have missed that bit) and that it's now a race between the two frontrunners Iggy and Rae.

This would be funny if it weren't so pathetically sad. Libloggers give credence to straw polls, web polls you can drop into your blog. Yet the poll that states Ken Dryden is a frontrunner among Canadians and Liberals is being studiously ignored. Ingnoring it won't make it go away.
