And the push back on the latest Quinnipiac poll begins…
The party identification sample in the CBS/NYT/Quinnipiac polls slightly oversample Dems, but as Nathan Wurtzel points out, the Obama/McCain numbers from the sample in the three states certainly seem to favor Obama more. The sample shows Obama up 53 to 40 percent in Florida (he won 51-48 in ’08); 53 to 38 percent in Ohio (he won 52-47) and 54 to 40 percent in Pennsylvania (he won 54-44).
So, yes, the Quinnipiac poll is a more Democratic-friendly sample than usual.
