A day after Eliot Spitzer's huge lead just up and vanished like a fart in the wind, it's back again in the latest New York Times poll, which has Spitzer leading Scott Stringer by fifteen points. Polls sure are crazy! One caveat about this latest poll, though: Respondents were surveyed from as far back as August 19. Times political reporter Michael Barbaro says this is because "good work takes time."
