I haven't looked at the numbers, but your proposition that Orthodox Jews must be underrepresented in this survey of which you complain makes the assumption that Orthodox Jews vote at the same rates as non-Orthodox Jews.  I doubt that is the case, since with other religions the degree of religiosity affects voting rates.  Indeed, at one time evangelical Christians tended to shun politics as being too worldly.  It's also possible that Orthodox Jews have different response rates to pollsters.

This thread has been about 5% discussion of actual results and 95% discussion of wild-eyed guesses as to what they should be without any hard data to back up these feelings.  I'm locking the thread, but if someone has some actual hard data to post or discuss, PM me and I'll unlock it.

I've been convinced to reopen the thread, but I'm moving it to the Polling board.
