    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.
