  1. is the sample size too small to be representative… i might have to break out the old textbooks.

  2. The Kaiser says:

    if you look at most sampling data in many states including va, you’ll look at the same universe.

    the fact that demographics are pretty stable throughout the state still speaks well to this poll.

    Essentially white ‘lunch bucket’ democrats are migrating towards obama.

    however, it could have been isolated to a geographic region.

    if so, we’re fucked.

  3. Doctor Brown says:

    It’s interesting to see the mountain state’s electoral fortune’s could shift. It might almost restore my faith in the good, common sense of her people … almost.
