I’ve written somewhat disparagingly about polls and the media’s over-reliance on them as “news.”

These three headlines (a bit of detail in brackets), all from today at Teagan Goddard’s Political Newswire, don’t deal directly with the media, but they do give you a pretty good idea of why I feel that way:

IA Poll: Clinton Holds Edge in Texas (47% to 43% for Clinton)

Belo Tracking Poll: Obama Closes Gap in Texas (46% to 45% for Clinton)

PCP Poll: Obama Opens Up Lead in Texas (40% to 33% for Obama)

Yeesh.
