View Diary: New Daily Kos/PPP poll shows Wisconsin gubernatorial recall picture unchanged (290 comments)

  •  I am skeptical of this poll (6+ / 0-)

    because it uses a voting list, and not random digit dialing. The petition drive gave us a huge list of eligible voters who we know are opposed to Walker, and whose names and addresses we have. It's pretty fresh too--only a few months old. However, something like 20% of them are not registered to vote. Wisconsin has same day registration, so we can turn out these voters out and register them the day of the election. A significant number of IDed and activated voters are going to be out of reach of PPP's polling by design. The bottom line is that in a state with same day registration, the list of likely voters is not a subset of the list of registered voters.
