And the push back on the latest Quinnipiac poll begins…

The latest CBS/New York Times/Quinnipiac poll showing Barack Obama with leads in three swing states has been officially on the street for about twenty minutes, but the push back has already begun.

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.
