Lord knows nothing drives me much crazier than shoddy media coverage of polling.
That's why I appreciate the effort Peter St. Onge of the Charlotte Observer is making with the paper's election blog, The Ballot, to help make readers more informed about the ins and outs of polling in this election cycle.
We're collaborating on a regular q&a about current polling issues to help people move beyond the toplines and get a better understanding of the survey landscape. Today we talked about whether a poll's sponsor biases the numbers, and earlier this week we talked about some shifts in Ohio.
Check it out and I'll also link to pertinent discussions here.
