The Ohio Poll issued a press release saying that with undecideds forced to say where they’re leaning Kasich leads 52% to 47.7%. And that’s all they’ll tell about their poll. Seriously. Go read it yourself.
They don’t even tell you what the numbers would be before you add where the undecided are leaning. We can’t tell how many Democrats, Republicans, Independents were polled to see if its a realistic sample of the likely general election vote.
We don’t even know how many, if any, respondents had already voted. We are told nothing about the age, race, economic class, education, or even where in Ohio the respondents lived. In other words, the University of Cincinnati is not making it easy for us to independent determine if its a realistic sample or not.
For that reason, I obviously can’t put much stock in it given the obvious past problems in October with the Ohio Poll’s likely voter model.
