    about the validity of this poll. I like this numbers but how trustworthy do you think they are?

    •  Internal polls are kinda funny. (0+ / 0-)

      Typically a campaign's internal polls are actually more accurate than media polls, since they have much more stake in their accuracy than media outlets. But of course if you know the results of an internal poll (and you don't work for the campaign), that means the poll is subject to a serious publication bias.

      So in general an internal poll has to be taken with a grain of salt, but it's not total bullshit.

      (Not sure what category a DSCC tracking poll falls into, though. It might well be bullshit.)
