I was gonna believe this poll at first, until I noticed Grimes was doing better among likely voters.

You know this poll is accurate because they're giving results to the hundredth of a percent.

The margin is believable, but...

A) Decimals, to the hundredths place.

B) Grimes doing better among likely voters than registered voters.

Between KCDem, decimals, junk polls, turtlefaces, and joke leads, how did the earth not explode when this thread was created??

Very plausible because Tea Party Republicans are not a fan of McConnell and may sit out this one rather than vote for Grimes.

They'll vote McConnell. He supports their policies.

But at the same time, this poll shows only 13% support for the Tea Party in Kentucky. My gosh, that is a terrible showing for them, especially in a relatively rural state.

Why so many people care so much about decimals? Rounding the headline results doesn't make any poll more or less accurate, any pollster more or less reliable; it's merely an industry practice and none of the choices is inherently better than the other.

KC Dem is the most partisan poster on this board ... That is no easy task.

At this point I would like to remind both FreedomHawk and KCDem that this is the Atlas Forum, not Xbox-Live.

I have to say the poll threads getting more and more trainwrecky as the election approaches is quite entertaining. Will we all be throwing feces at each other on November 3rd?

If she was polling 40%, she wouldn't have a chance, but good thing she's polling 40.03%.
