I think the Fox and CNN polls are one of the few that use live callers for both cell phone and landline surveys. I wouldn't exactly call them junk. The Fox poll is a collaboration of both a Democrat and Republican pollsters.

That seems to be the status of all three of these races around the fringes of the MOE.

I can buy early voters going 51-36 for Orman and even 55-31 for Hagan, but 61-31 for Ernst? Small sub-samples, I suppose.

Hard to tell at least from the IA poll, but that would be my guess. An early vote total is rarely statistically significant unless a ton of votes are banked.

Lol, Fox puts out non-biased polls right before the election. Classic!

I know you red hats hate Fox, but to their credit, their polling is anything other than "biased."

Again, it's live-agent cell phone and landline poll conducted by both a Republican and Democrat pollster.

Media organizations, including MSNBC, CNN, the local TV stations and Fox are looking to get it right and not engage in partisanship.
