  •  The crosstabs show it's noise (1+ / 0-)

    From the methodology: "PPP weights its polls for race, age, and gender to ensure its surveys properly represent the population. (Note: PPP does not weight for party identification.)"

    Nothing wrong with that; I think weighting by party ID is hard to do well and prone to distortion. But it is still useful to look at it as a crosstab.

    Party Identification, this tied poll: 38D 37R 25I  (D - R = 1)
    Previous week's poll: 39D 32R 29I   (D - R = 7)

    You can't read too much into crosstabs, especially party identification, but it at least indicates the possibility of a more Republican-identifying than usual sample this week.
