Mitt's Poll "Surge"
I am pleased to see that Hugh Hewitt doesn't
buy this given the source.
It has been 13 months since Zogby's idiotic "poll" of American troops in Iraq, and he still hasn't come clean on that set-up job.
It is a smart man indeed who knows enough to discount news that fits his personal bias. Hewitt is indeed a smart man.
Looking at the poll, I see a rather obvious problem
This is a telephone survey of [Republican Primary Voters] conducted by Zogby International. The target sample is  interviews with approximately  questions asked. Samples are randomly drawn from telephone cd’s of national listed sample.
However, as political pros know, New Hampshire's registered independent voters can vote in either primary
(but not both), so figuring out who Republican primary voters are can get a tad tricky. Of course, typically one primary or the other features a non-competitive race, something that may not happen this election, making figuring out who will be voting in which primary even tougher than usual.
