I see we're going with the 4-way Suffolk poll in Ohio (which favors Clinton) and the 2-way WMUR poll in New Hampshire (which also coincidently favors Clinton). We need some consistency when entering polls. Either we just enter 2-way numbers or just enter 3/4-way numbers.

I agree. Especially after it was already put in as a TIE. I am calling you out  benconstine (D-VA).

I am reposting something here not directly related to the database but about making new posts about new polls.

When making a new post about a new poll, please keep headlines to 'just the facts'. So they should contain the name of the pollster, state of national, horse race number(s) or margin

For the body of the post, it should ideally contain:
- Name of Media outlet and pollster
- Identify if national or state
- Date range of poll
- All available horse race numbers (2-way, 3-way, 4-way)
- All available samples (RV, LV and Adults)
- Link to source (ideally media article and to detailed poll if available)

Also nice to have
- change since last poll (especially with more frequent polls and trackers)
- methodology and MoE
- interesting crosstabs or details (this can also be in an additional comment to OP)

Hi - note, I've added McMullin to the database as the independent.  the "I" box is only for his percentage.  Johnson, Stein, Castle, etc. are aggregated into "Other" for now.

Thanks,
Dave
