    Polls are now using Likely Voters instead of Registered Voters. What is a Likely Voter? I believe that the pollster ask the person if they voted in the last election. If they did not - then they are not a likely voter and are not counted in the poll. We all know that in the last election the Democrats stayed home. Therefore likely voters in the polls are more Republican than Democrat and that explains why such a big change in the polls since the debate.
