What Polls Don’t Show Us

October 21, 2009

Nate Silver revamps his expectations of the outcome of Question 1 in light of yesterday’s poll, but he’s still putting his money on the “No” side.  Another interesting read.

While the breakdown of demographics can be frustrating, I’m reminded of one of the most memorable speakers from the hearings back in April.  One of the factors that polling identifies as an indicator of how one will vote is age.  While this is sadly true, let’s remember that there are also older men and women who agree with Philip Spooner, a World War II vet.  (Update: Towleroad has this clip up too)
