Stupid Polling Tricks

CNN reports on a poll in my state, Florida Republicans reveal views on issues, candidates, that makes no sense.

They say flatly that Giuliani is it, but later on point out that 47% of the people polled haven’t made up their minds yet. Well, if half of the voters haven’t made up their minds, the poll tells us nothing about who is actually leading. Giuliani may be leading among those who have made a decision, but there are two months before the primary. It’s a waste of time, money, and space to talk about it.

They fact that only one in five Republicans support an abortion ban is interesting, but most of the “horse race” nonsense they are trying to get out of the poll is worthless.
