Sincerely doubt the poll’s statistical design adequately records the major shift. The original design of the poll would not sample heavily in the coal country since it is not a high population area. Therefore the final poll would miss a big shift in this area.
I don’t know this newpaper but it sounds like a Push-poll based on the questions...They asked about Romney’s ‘47%’ remarks...Did they ask about Barry’s disaster in Libya? His disaster with the economy?
If you’re from Ohio, maybe you can weigh in on the bias of this paper.
This happened in '04 as well...
