Classic Polling Mish-Mash

Here's the lead on a story reporting the lastest USA Today poll:
Barack Obama's national standing has been significantly damaged by the controversy over his former pastor, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, raising questions for some voters about the Illinois senator's values, credibility and electability.
And here's what a story on an NYT poll has to say:
A majority of American voters say the furor over the relationship between Senator Barack Obama and his former pastor has not affected their opinion of Mr. Obama, but a substantial number say it could influence voters this fall should he be the Democratic presidential nominee.
So who are you going to believe? Once again, we see the only poll that truly counts is the one the voters fill out in the election booth.
