Obama robo-call today prompts question about poll projections

Got a robo voicemail today from Jeff Blodgett, Obama’s Get Out the Vote guru in Minnesota.

Got a robo voicemail today from Jeff Blodgett, Obama’s Get Out the Vote guru in Minnesota. (He happens to be a neighbor, but this was totally robo.)

Message said the contest in Minnesota is “actually closer than we expected” and said the Obama campaign is seeking door-knockers and volunteers for 5 o’clock tonight?

Are the polls wrong?
