    Compared to the recent Q poll out of FL this poll is amazing.

    •  Honestly, I regard the racial crosstabs (0+ / 0-)

      as the only ones worth considering. And in this case, I think they somewhat undermine the genuinely not-so-bad toplines.

      Ok, so I read the polls.

        I just don't give excessive weight to them. Now, granted, as the single largest demographic group in the poll, the figure for whites should be more reliable. But we are still talking about a sample of 319 people. We don't take seriously polls of that number when it represents the total sample.
