I just saw Republican pol Ed Rogers on Hardball and he told people to take the advice of RealClearPolitics.com. Wrong. Right at election eve 2000, RealClearPolitics.com predicted about 400 electoral votes for George W. Bush (I'm too busy to look up the actual number; email me if you know). Bush's actual electoral vote count: 256 earned electoral votes plus 25 stolen electoral votes.
The latest Salon has an article on polling that's worth a look.
UPDATE: Actually, RealClearPolitics predicted 446 electoral votes for Bush and 92 for Gore.
