        Of course his lead is going to shrink when they go from registered voters to likely voters.

        And of course the question is how does this pollster define what a likely voter is in an off year special election?

        By the way I hear Gallup has Romney up 7 points on Obama! We're DOOMED!

          Had a margin twice that. As have other previous LV polls.

          •  Again, What Is A Likely Voter (0+ / 0-)

            Every polling firm is going to have a different definition, especially in an off year special election.

            •  You wouldn't expect that much difference (1+ / 0-)

              Though I suppose the Rutgers poll last week was half as large again as the Stockton margin yesterday. I'm not suggesting "doom" at all. It just looks a little odd to me to see three polls in a short time look so different. Yes, the definition of likely voters is likely the reason.

    •  By The Way This Illustrates What I Hate About TPM (3+ / 0-)

      The headline makes it sound like Booker's support has cratered, but then you read the article and in paragraph three it states, "Quinnipiac noted that its previous survey of the race last month, which showed Booker with a 25-point advantage, used a broader sample of registered voters and cannot be compared to the latest findings."

      Again: "and cannot be compared to the latest findings."

      Sometimes TPM seems as bad as the Huffington Post. I really hate what TPM has become as of late.

      •  TPM has become trash. They have been (0+ / 0-)

        doing the misleading headlines and their Livewire newsfeed which used to give you a list of political news items for the day now spends more time on silly nonsense to generate clicks than on actual news.

        I would kill for a replacement for TPM's livewire.
