    very likely the pollsters are making this decision based on not wanting to include "too many" likely voters, not on narrative demands. The intuition is pretty straightforward: people who say that they'll "probably" help pick up the park on Saturday, probably won't.

    However, when it comes to voting, a bunch of the "certains" won't and a bunch of the "probablys" -- and even people farther down the scale -- won't. So the screen is sketchy.
