  •  Zogby's telephone polls... (4+ / 0-)

    use a different (standard) methodology.

    I don't remember anyone complaining about Zogby in general... it was specifically about the online ("interactive") polls which are notoriously shit due to their suspect methodology.

    •  I should say... (2+ / 0-)

      faulty methodology rather than suspect methodology.

      There's really very little debate about it... they've historically proved to be unreliable/inaccurate.

    •  Well (1+ / 0-)

      I have huge problems with online polls myself, not to go too deeply into that, but my point is that the same people, literally, who design the online polls also design the phone polls. So if there are flaws in the methodology of one, it stands to reason that the other is flawed as well. I've had issues with Zogby for a while myself, but that's because I know a few things about polling.

      FWIW, there's a diary on the rec list right now that has it at 32-25-25 for Obama. What's surprising about the poll in this diary is that it's completely counter to the trend we've seen established. And while that is possible, I don't see any external event that would trigger a poll turnaround for Clinton.
