  •  Yeah but (4+ / 0-)

    an honest journalist reports it with an appropriate huge asterisk.  

    On top of which, gimme a fucking break, you couldn't find any one in Ohio, minority, or under 30, who intended to watch the debate and agreed to take your poll?  No one?

    •  They may have had 15 people . . . (1+ / 0-)

      in Ohio respond including four people who were 30 or young, and one guy who as a minority.  However, you aren't going to take a handful of responses and then state that those are representative of the entire state.

      However, in the context of a national audience, those responses may be statistically valid.

      This is what I take the N/A to mean.  It doesn't mean that the number is zero.  I suspect it means -- not enough responses to provide a statistically valid snapshot of this particular subgroup.
