Voter News Service Dying

The New York Times reports that the major television networks and AP are considering dissolving their decadelong partnership with VNS, the election day polling organization that screwed things up in 2000, and altogether collepsed in 2002. I think this would be a good thing because news outlets (and professors) have become too dependent on the polling (note the emphasis) organization. Mickey Kaus considers how this will effect the Iowa caucuses which have, in his words, "been virtually creatures of the VNS." Iowa will become less important, and less liberal Demo candidates will have a better shot in the primaries.
