First, there was that piece of shit Choctaw poll which was so obviously skewed a really stupid labrador could have figured it out (apologies to Paul Burka… for him being stupid and out of touch). Now we have a newspaper poll that shows White and Perry in a dead heat in SA and Houston (yeah, not buying that either) and Perry up by 30 in DFW.
I know, I know… laugh. it. up.
On the validity, your guess is as good as mine… speaking of mine, here it is… they’re overweighting likely voters by ‘intensity’. That seems to be this year’s excuse for overweighting Republican in the samples. Two problems with intensity: 1) It burns itself out rather abruptly and 2) When it burns really hot, it tends to draw a negative backlash.
