Playing with math in New Jersey polls

I like math. I like puzzles. Here are the only 2 latest polls on RCP for New Jersey.
5/1 - 5/3 HRC +28
5/10 - 5/16 HRC +14
I especially like math when it's easy like this! So lets add more 10 day increments and continue a 7x4, 7x2 trend
5/20 - 5/24 HRC 0
5/30 - 6/7 SBS +14

Unless that 4/2 factor is exponential!

Just having fun - don't go all weird on me!

Unless something extraordinary happens, Clinton will need all the help she can get to keep Trump out, and you can bet I'll be playing with his numbers then too!

and so you try to explain it away. Or find a new one. The analysis of what went down in this cycle on both sides in say, 2 years from now is going to be fascinating! It's like a color wheel spinning too fast - all that red and blue and yellow spitting out orange and purple and green and a big shitty brown mess - big splatter painting up for auction! Did the public buy a Pollock or a fraud?

Released. I don't think the limited polls in this contest are much of a coincidence.

The winners are so counting on disillusionment and inevitability, pumping it up at every chance. Yay for your strength!
