View Diary: Turns out Romney's internal polls needed the unskewing (172 comments)

    Seems as though they focused on voters identifying as most enthusiastic.  In their polling Romney did much better.  But what the article doesn't describe was what percentage these "enthusiastic" voters were of the whole. If  80% of a given voter population is enthusiastic - great!  but if that comprises 20 percent - not so great.  

    Not having any experience I would guess that the voter by enthusiasm chart is pretty much a bell curve.  Aim at other end and your aim would be off.  That big fat middle may not be skipping to the booth but they probably will drive.

    GIGO rules hear.  If I were a candidate I would be darned sure I would want the details of how someone is drawing up numbers. Shame on them if they didn't.
