4. Likely voters suddenly switched to not-likely voters when they realized Obama was about to put electrified fences around GOP primary voting booths
3. Forgot number 3… oops!

    How wrong do you predict those poll numbers to be? What’s the impact of those 10 (well, 9, really) factors that could skew the poll numbers?

    There’s probably a standard deviation involved with polling, no?
