WaPo poll: Most Dems/Leaners undecided. Biden and Kamala lead among decided

Last edited Tue Jan 29, 2019, 06:57 AM - Edit history (2)

Biden and Kamala lead those fixed.

The Washington Post has some explaining to do.
They have Trump even ahead of Warren. Again, this is among Democrats and Democratic leaners, which is usually the sample used by all other pollsters.

2. No, I can't

 

That's a bunch of pages with numbers, not a clarification.

7. That's methodology data. It's crucial in an analysis of the reliability of the polling.

Even if those unpracticed in the interpretation of the reliability and validity of polling don't understand it, it is still the explanation.

3. Oh. Just. Stop. This is fear-mongering nonsense. Read carefully: "Most Dems undecided."

4. I'm aware of the undecided

 

I don't believe that fewer Democrats have decided for Warren than Donald freaking Trump.

6. All this shows is that people are easily distracted by the shiny new thing...

 

....2 weeks ago it was Beto in that second spot. Now it's Kamala.

The 24 hour news cycle makes and breaks you, then makes you again, then breaks you again.

The point being, thinking this far out is an indication of anything is a fool's errand.

I just really hope that Joe doesn't run. I want to remember him for who he has been up until now. A faithful, dedicated public servant and an amazing Vice President.
