    are implausibly Democratic in this sample.

    But that can happen.

    Ok, so I read the polls.

      This is actually our most "liberal" sample ever. (Dreaminonempty informed me after I wrote this post.)

    •  This is just one case which I realize wouldn't (0+ / 0-)

      swing the polls, but I received a polling call over the weekend. Normally I ignore any calls that are not from people that I know, but I picked up thinking it might be polling and it was.

      I'm a white woman, liberal, Democratic and vote in every election, including off-cycle elections. So very much a white, Democratic, likely voter.

      One of the reasons I picked up was thinking that the Democrats might not be well-represented since so many younger people may not have land lines and I sometimes worry that decisions over campaign donations are made based on polling. If their candidate is not looking so good, I think some people worry that their donation is throwing good money after bad. I wonder if that thought process was occurring with anyone else.
