Is Gallup’s R+1 for OH or nationally?
nationally. Also @numbersmuncher ie. Jordan from NRO says they pushed the indies to lean one way or the other in effect making the sample less dem heavy than it otherwise would have been.
So in effect this is more like a D+6 poll or worse if they hadn’t pushed the indies to say which way they are leaning. Indies were obviously leaning Romney so they upped the rep totals by calling these republican leaning indies republicans so we wouldn’t yell at them for undersampling republicans. Very tricky these guys. If they did correct labelling, they wouldn’t push indies one way or the other and leave them as independents supporting Romney.
True republicans and dems would have been left alone also. If they did this, this sample appears to be a D+6 sample or worse.
More good news.
