My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


This Can't Be Right

9News has published the results of its latest commissioned poll, done by Survey USA:

With only 15 days until the election, Ritter is leading Republican candidate Bob Beauprez 56 percent to 38 percent, according to the poll which was conducted exclusively for 9NEWS.

Really? 56-38?? That doesn't quite pass the smell test for me. And, as I've mentioned before, since Survey USA refuses to make its internals available, there's no way to parse the numbers.

What there is for sure is a survey conducted on a Friday through Sunday, which we all know favors the Democrats traditionally. Beyond that, there's nothing to work with.

That said, a goofy number and a traditionally skewed sampling day are not likely to add up to all 18 points. That can't be great news for the Beauprez campaign.
