  •  And if the CNN/ORC sample had had the spread (1+ / 0-)

    as something like 54-40, which might have been reasonable, it would not have had the effect it did on the public.

    The debate was susceptible to two interpretations: "Obama didn't fight back hard enough" and "Romney shamelessly lied his ass off."  Once you had the 69-25 result of the CNN/ORC poll, one would feel out of step making the latter one.

    That was the point -- less of the poll itself than of the failure to label to the public what the poll was and wasn't.  It wasn't a representative view of the public -- which is how it was presented to viewers and readers.
