Seven Easy Rules for Reading Polls

1. Don't argue with the numbers because they're not telling you what you want to hear
2. Don't ascribe to bias or incompetence that which can be explained by random error
3. Don't use the phrase "statistical tie" unless the horse-race numbers are actually tied
4. Don't divide polls into "right" and "wrong" because the toplines differ
5. Don't assume that house effects are set in stone
6. Don't overreact to any single poll
7. Party ID is for amateurs

If only the Obama campaign had listened to David Gergen and Cory Booker.

These are all outliers, folks. Something something too many Democrats sampled.

What's your firm's response rate? What proportion of respondents are mobile vs. landline? Sample size?

Interesting comments from the Republican pollster who jointly conducts the FOX poll, touching partly on the partisan ID question:

“The events of the past two weeks appear to have energized Democratic voters a bit," says Republican pollster Daron Shaw, who conducts the Fox News poll with Democratic pollster Chris Anderson. “But perhaps more critically, Romney’s support among independents has declined. The Obama campaign has -- at least in the short-term -- succeeded in raising questions about Romney’s fitness to govern and in making this less of a referendum and more of a choice election."

Does anyone here think the election day ID will be close to D+9? If you do, believe this poll. If not, put it in with the Colorado poll.

This was true when you said it about the CNN poll earlier today. It's obviously not true now.

A poster named Hillary2012 and has a username with Romney in it doesn't like Obama's chances. He sounds very objective in this matter.

I disagree pretty strongly with what he's claiming, but there's no need to get so personal.

FOX undersampled the Indys
who think it will be 20I only??
D+9 is laughable
and to think Romney would get only 30% of the Indys is wishfulthinking too

Do people really believe CNN and Fox are biased towards Obama? Ok Someone can claim NBC
Is due to primetime Progressive hosts.

and someone who claims to be hillary clinton supporter.Obama made Hillary his secretary of state.
Bill Clinton Is one of DNC top Speakers.

I just love this.  Not only are people flat out denying polls they don't like, but now they're actually making up numbers and claiming them to be more accurate than what all the other polls say?  Wow, there are going to be some teary faces this November...

But don't worry, I'm sure the real margin after Election Day will be dismissed as an "outlier," using this new logic. Tongue
