When Even Unskewing Doesn’t Help
THE POLL IN QUESTION: A Fox News-sponsored survey released yesterday that shows President Obama up 5 points, 48 percent to Mitt Romney’s 43.
THE ‘UNSKEWED’ VERSION: Obama up 2 points, 46 percent to 44 percent. You read that right: The president is now in the lead even by Chambers’ math. While the margin is obviously less than the gap the Fox News poll showed, it’s nonetheless noteworthy because it’s a major departure from the past dozen of so of Chambers’ reworked polls that showed Romney well on his way to a historic victory.
