    3=undecided/other

    While we are having it coded both as 3, there is a Gary Johnson vote in MT and ND (anecdotal evidence: in the town of roughly 1000 in which I live in rural SE ND, there are about a half dozen Johnson signs).  One of the problems of sample in small rural states is that the third party candidates can show up and distort the polling.  While Johnson probably won't top 2% in the state, a few committed respondents can skew the numbers.

    Also, while Mark Mellman, who I respect, has an undecided vote in the ND Senate Race of 8%, Rasmussen is at 5%, and the race is absolutely blanketing the air waves.  We are an inexpensive media market, and there are very few undecided voters in the Senate race.
