Poll Technical Comments

A generic comment about Survey USA polls, it aplies in Virginia, but also other places.

Survey USA's screening is based on 741 "likely voters" out of a sample of 1000.

A turnout rate of thus 74.1%

In 2004 the turnout for the Presidential race in Virginia was (going from memory here) +/- 57% or so.

Midterm turnout is historically much lower than Predidential years, so the 74.1%turnout assumtion is just plain wrong.

How wrong is debateable, but certainly it introduces a substantial uncertainty into this poll.

Usually Survey USA gets it right but this is iffy, their other polls seem right.preciction Map
