52. Some of us need to keep up. Monmouth uses both cell phones and landlines.

The Monmouth University Poll was sponsored and conducted by the Monmouth University Polling Institute from January 7 to 10, 2016 with a statewide random sample of 413 New Hampshire voters drawn from a list of registered Democrats and independent voters who participated in a primary election in the past two election cycles or voted in both the 2012 and 2014 general elections, and indicate they will vote in the Democratic presidential primary in February 2016. This was supplemented by a sample of new voters who say they are likely to register and vote in the Democratic primary. This includes 290 contacted by a live interviewer on a landline telephone and 123 contacted by a live interviewer on a cell phone, in English. Monmouth is responsible for all aspects of the survey design, data weighting and analysis. Final sample is weighted for age and gender based on state registration list information on the pool of voters who participate in primary elections. Data collection support provided by Braun Research (field) and Aristotle (voter list and non-voter sample). For results based on the total sample, one can say with 95% confidence that the error attributable to sampling has a maximum margin of plus or minus 4.8 percentage points (unadjusted for sample design). Sampling error can be larger for sub-groups (see table below). In addition to sampling error, one should bear in mind that question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of opinion polls.

74. Compared to the last poll from the same outfit, Sanders is up 34%!

http://www.kbur.com/2015/07/06/iowa-democrats-prefer-hillary-but-sanders-gaining-in-kburmonmouth-college-poll/

Former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton holds a more than 3 to 1 advantage over her closest competitor, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in a KBUR-AM, Burlington, IA, and Monmouth College (IL) Midwest Matters poll of 1,000 likely caucus goers.

Clinton has the support of 63% of Democrats in Iowa compared with 20% for Sanders. Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley is at 5%, former Virginia Senator Jim Webb is at 3% and former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chaffee is at 1%. Another 8% of respondents are undecided.


From 43% behind to just 9% behind. At this rate, Sander's will be at least 10% ahead by the time the caucus convenes!

“The results of the poll fit in pretty well with what the rest of the polls are showing,” said Robin Johnson, host of “Talking Politics” on KBUR and part-time lecturer at Monmouth College, “In that Hillary Clinton has a sizable lead in Iowa. Bernie Sanders is the main competition, and he’s risen to 20% of the vote so far. I think it’s interesting that he does better among men than he does women at this point and so, he’s got a ways to go but he’s had a pretty good start so far to his campaign.”

There is a wide gender gap in the support of Clinton and Sanders, with Clinton ahead of Sanders among women by 69% to 14% while her lead among men is at 52% to 31%.

76. I noticed that earlier today as well.

It's amazing to watch really. She shouldn't have turned away from SPHC. That was a gut punch to people who been promised for years. Hell, now they won't even try.

Health Care is where she took her biggest hit in Iowa. Down 38% on who do you trust?

"A big change in CNN's Iowa polls: Clinton was judged to be best on health care 63-31, now it's Sanders 51-45."
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2016/01/21/1473134/-Clinton-s-Healthcare-Attacks-Leaves-Mud-On-Her-Face


I'm just stunned that she would attack Sanders' on what is one of his strongest points and popular with 81% of the party. It's almost as if she's trying to throw the election.

57. Both the Monmouth College and Emerson College Polls were robocalls.

The one you are citing is from Monmouth University (and looks great for Bernie in NH, btw)... not Monmouth College. Nancy's 2 polls are Emerson College and Monmouth College.

Both of Nancy's polls were robocalls, otherwise known as IVRs. Here is some info on them:

IVR Surveys—Robo Calling

Some pre-election telephone polls use no live interviewers at all and rely exclusively on
recorded voices. These are called IVR polls, for interactive voice response, or sometimes
robopolls in the vernacular. Here an automatic dialer calls households and a prerecorded
voice asks questions and asks respondents to enter the number that
corresponds with the survey response options given them. Because IVR polls are unable
to dial cell phone numbers unless they are hand-dialed and added to their landline
samples, they are unable to accurately represent the voting public.
Some do add cell
phones dialed separately from those dialed automatically, but some add only a trivial
amount, largely for cosmetic purposes than for truly increased coverage. Again, the
number of cell phones added to landline interviews is a fair an indicator of quality; if cell
phones do not make up at least one-third of a telephone sample, it may not be worth
reporting.


IVR polls can be problematic even when cell surveys are added to the mix, given that
there is no respondent selection procedure within the contacted landline household. viii
Given who tends to answer landline telephones, IVR polls tend to be disproportionately
composed of older women
, who are likely to have a different response pattern and may
have a particularized response to the two polled candidates than a cross-section of the
public as a whole.
Such polls use no selection technique when contacting a household,
but instead try to compensate for the lack of within-household selection by weighting
the resulting data to demographic targets. Not having a random selection within the
household compromises a fundamental tenet of probability sampling and should
require an accounting and justification before being reported.ix

20. Or not.

All IA polls are almost always wrong. As in, the actual result lands outside their MoE. For example, most polls showed Clinton winning or close in IA in 2008. They definitely did not show her coming in third.

Polling models work somewhat well for primary states, but no one has a good model for caucus states.

16. It's hard to poll Iowa

 

Since it's much easier to answer a poll than to actually go to a caucus. Of course on the one hand, Sanders appears to have more enthusiastic supporters and that might make them more eager to get out. (Then again few had more enthusiasm in Iowa than Howard Dean and we saw where that got him). On the other hand, a lot of Clinton supporters are older, established Dems that have been caucusing for decades so they may be the ones that can be counted on to come out. This is why you gotta love politics.

24. Outside of MOE of 6%. However, Hillary leads among 2008 caucus goers 55-38%.

The sampling was over 2002 people called on the phone, presumably half of them were republicans. So, about 1000 democrats, of whom only 280 were "likely caucus goers". We need the turnout people!

On edit: it seems possible that they used only the 280 likely democratic caucus goers for the estimate. That's why the 6% MOE. This is not a very good poll, but it will make headlines and endless pundit chatter tonight.

If it's 6% then this poll is a statistical tie. You have to subtract 6% from Bernie's total and add 6% to Hillary's. If they overlap, then it's a tie.

if her attacks on Sanders are increasing. Attack mode is not an indulgence for front-runners.

34. Who can afford to lose a close one?

 

The answer is easy. Sanders. He was never supposed to be close. Sure, he could win New Hampshire, the cuckoo state where the Republicans are all socialists, etc. etc. But the Clinton powerhouse would deal him a fatal blow in Iowa, where party loyalty tips the caucus system heavily against Sanders. If he was stupid enough to keep going, South Carolina would seal the deal. Now all Sanders has to do is come close in Iowa, and he gets a new lease on life. If he wins, the whole ball game changes dramatically. Clinton absolutely must knock him out in South Carolina, and it's looking less and less likely every day.

If Clinton can come out of Iowa with a 60/35/5 win, she's good to go. Anything closer than suggests she's vulnerable, and her whole deal is appearing invulnerable.

44. Only 280 likely democratic caucus goers were sampled. That's a small sample. nt

60. A previous poll that was hailed as the Sanders death knell

Had 375, so glass houses and all that.

75. Her poll samples showing her ahead are terrible! Here is the sample:

 

Flawed to the point of absurdity

71 percent of those polls were age 45 and older.
Only 15 percent of those polled were under the age of 34.

Folks, you can't make this stuff up.

54 percent of those polled were women
46 percent of those polled were men

Monmouth really knows how to fuck up polling--to the point where what they're doing is closer to making waffles than polling.

Whatever. Enjoy your Hillary is winning "poll".

45. Yes, but this poll was Pre-Sense Shaking

Wait til we see the effects of that.


Seriously, however, if pre-primary polling nominated candidates, Hillary would be finishing her second term this year.

Hard to call either candidate a favorite at this point, though the momentum is certainly in Bernie's favor.

A Clinton spokesman was just on CNN saying polls showing Bernie ahead are incorrect;
poorly done.

80. off course they are

And polls with Hillary ahead are accurate with a margin of error of .000000000001?

They attack,attack.attack and nothing works.
They call in two Right Wing advisors the attacks backfire...
Seems like they would learn..

Go Bernie !!

86. I don't put much trust in polls.

However, the trend is pretty clear. Bernie is going to win Iowa. By how much is the only real question now. I personally think it will be big.

FEEL THE BERN
