WBUR Poll strikes fear into the Heart of Elizabeth Warren

Twenty days ago I took a look at a poll from WBUR on the Brown War­ren race​.It showed War­ren up 5 pts but was the first poll I’d seen any­where that matched reg­is­tra­tion exactly

A Boston Her­ald poll show­ing Brown up +6 came out at the same time. I did a post com­par­ing inter­nals of the polls and found the WBUR poll cred­i­ble and the Her­ald poll not.

I’d like to Believe the Her­ald poll, I really would and I’m aware of a shift of peo­ple away from the Demo­c­rat party to the ranks of the Unen­rolled but with­out solid data to back it up I have to believe the WBUR poll over the Her­ald one

When the next WBUR poll Oct 1st matched demo­graph­ics again I com­ple­mented them on twitter.

it got some push back for a friend of mine.

My thought has always been I want accu­rate polls because oth­er­wise you can’t fix what is wrong with your campaign.

Well the lat­est WBUR poll is out and for the third time in a row their demo­graph­ics match reg­is­tra­tion EXACTLY, it’s quite an achieve­ment these days

This time how­ever the results are totally different:

It appears that Scott Brown last debate com­bined with dif­fer­ent Tac­tics have shifted this race dra­mat­i­cally, much bet­ter than ignor­ing the results or dis­miss­ing them.

And to those who would pooh pooh my push­ing of this poll, I didn’t hear you com­plain­ing when it showed War­ren up.

Be afraid left­ists, be very afraid.

I’d like to Believe the Herald poll, I really would and I’m aware of a shift of people away from the Democrat party to the ranks of the Unenrolled but without solid data to back it up I have to believe the WBUR poll over the Herald one

When the next WBUR poll Oct 1st matched demographics again I complemented them on twitter.

My thought has always been I want accurate polls because otherwise you can’t fix what is wrong with your campaign.

Well the latest WBUR poll is out and for the third time in a row their demographics match registration EXACTLY, it’s quite an achievement these days

This time however the results are totally different:

It appears that Scott Brown last debate combined with different Tactics have shifted this race dramatically, much better than ignoring the results or dismissing them.

And to those who would pooh pooh my pushing of this poll, I didn’t hear you complaining when it showed Warren up.

Be afraid leftists, be very afraid.
