Is Lautenberg too old? Two polls disagree

Two independent polls released today on the race for United States Senator offer conflicting data on the question of Frank Lautenberg's ability, at age 84, to serve another six-year term: more than half the voters polled by Quinnipiac University say yes, while less more than two-thirds of Monmouth University/Gannett poll voters disagree. Both polls have Lautenberg leading Republican Dick Zimmer by about the same margin. Patrick Murray, who runs the Monmouth/Gannett poll, offers an explanation in his blog, which is worth the read.
