About that NBC/WSJ poll that panicked Republicans
**Posted by Phineas
You know, the one that showed Republicans getting killed over the government shutdown? Turns out there was a…. slight bias in the sample:
@texasbryanp In today’s NBC/WSJ poll, 1 in 5 respondents work for govt. Only 8% of general pop works for govt. See last page.

Gee, why am I not surprised that a poll that draws one-fifth of its respondents from government employees turns out badly for the party that’s against Big Government?
I think we can safely ignore this one.
