    This is what I linked to:

    The Research 2000 Massachusetts Poll was conducted for three organizations -- the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Democracy for America, and MoveOn.org -- on Tuesday, January 19, 2010 after polls closed in the special election for Senate.

    •  It is not an "exit" poll and therefore (2+ / 0-)

      "suspect." Why? Because it is not an "exit" poll. Get it?

    •  Two polls mixed (0+ / 0-)

      The poll is made up of two samples.  None of which are made up of only registered voters!

      They poll Democrats only! And then they Poll Obama voters only!

      And they're over the phone and not exits!

      Don't claim to know what happened in MA on Tuesday when you only look at certain areas of the voting Public!

      I know about polling and that poll, while interesting and thought provoking is dangerously unreliable without  looking at the larger voting population.

        out of VA and NJ showed similar. You can try to spin as much as you want, but you have yet to link to one example of data proving your position.

        Again, where's your data? Please don't link to anything that just discusses labels. Provide data regarding actual reasons given for voting decisions that go into substantive policies and how gthey view Democrats in detail.
