Candidate Rorschach will not be running

Nate Silver has an excellent post that implicitly makes a point that slips past most analysts: in a campaign where an incumbent faces an undetermined or little-known opponent, polls can be difficult to interpret. This doesn't mean that the polls at don't have useful information; it means you need to have someone competent (like Silver) to put them in the right context and properly analyze them.
