First, we're polling 6% nationally, not 7%. Check the averages at http://www. realclearpolitics.com

Second, if you look at the polls in the states voting today, most were significantly below 6%. This is consistant with what usually happens as election day approaches. People who don't want to "waste their vote" switch from candidates who are low in the polls to one of the top two contenders in that state.
