  •  Here's how internal polls work: (0+ / 0-)

    Campaigns issue tons of them, and get tons of numbers back. Sometimes they'll go with a polling firm that usually comes out with good numbers for their party. In any case, the polling firm knows what kind of numbers their client wants to see, and sometimes that affects how they weight the sample, apply likely voter screens, etc. Then, whatever poll numbers the campaign gets back, only the best-looking numbers (for them) ever find their way to the public.
