    I do remember SUSA having strange outliers in both directions, much more often than other national pollsters.  Not quite "throw them in the trash" numbers, but "huge grain of salt".

    •  Yup, it's more than just VA-05 (3+ / 0-)

      VA-05 is just the most memorably bad of many bad SUSA outliers.  They've had bad numbers a bunch.

      And no I don't care what rankings say.  If SUSA ranks high after as many bad outliers as they've had, that just incriminates public polling broadly.  Which itself is fair, there is a lot of consensus that public polling has been very bad in recent cycles.  Even some of the most reputable public pollsters, like Quinnipiac, haven't been take-to-the-bank trustworthy.
