Inaccurate Polling

Recommended Posts

First of all Im really glad the the polling isnt completely accurate, but was wondering if anyone else had this problem.

As Obama I was up by 4-5 points in IL and ended up losing by 5 (my homestate!). Im sure much of this was becasue I lsot ground between the time of the poll and election day, but I re-played from my last save several times and the same thing always happens. Am I just getting bad luck in IL?

I also have a larger foot soldier presence in the state and equal airtime. I also have private polling.

In the primaries, your % ahead is only among committed voters. There are often a large number of undecideds, and they tend to favor those with + momentum.
