    this is happening is that people have already voted via Obama's early ground game and that therefore they would have to respond "no" on intention to vote since they've already voted. I don't know. That could also mean 100% yes, depending on how they read it.

    Rand needs to account for the fact that not everybody is going to vote on election day.

    •  right, it "should" be 100/100... (1+ / 0-)

      but looking at the survey, people might have to deduce that it should be 100/100. I didn't immediately see anything in the methods report about early voting.

      I did see that they weight to reported 2008 vote -- which perhaps is not a great idea, since people's reports of past votes aren't necessarily accurate. Then I sternly told myself to get out of the weeds.

      Election protection: there's an app for that!
