Polls and politics

Posted at 11:45 AM on September 22, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Two quick blog links worthy of your comment.

First News Cut goes behind the polls. Bob Collins writes,

"The stories being written about the [AP-Yahoo poll] describe how voters feel about a particular candidate's ability to address a specific issue. What they aren't saying is that a large portion of those surveyed don't know what they're talking about.
Are voters easily swayed or even duped by polls? Comment.

Next Tom Scheck focuses Polinaut on the Rasmussen report that says Obama opens up lead over McCain in Minnesota. Does that ring true to you? Comment.
