The big RV/LV gap either means that A) Republicans are currently more motivated to vote or B) that Democrats are actually favoured if they have a sophisticated GOTV-machine on election day.

Lean more to A) though ...

Yes, I'm extremely skeptical the RV vs. LV discrepancy is THIS huge.

Indeed. But that could account for a 2-3-4 points difference between LV and RV. Not 7 and 8.

This poll is weird. Do we believe a PPP poll commissioned by a LIBERAL group, or a CNN poll in the MoE with a huge discrepancy?

Doesn't CNN generally have a large gap between RV and LV?

Exactly.  Interestingly, the CNN polls LV results look similar to other polls' results, but the RV ones are much more Democratic-favored. 

I would say this is Tilt D at this point, but Ernst could still win this.

... in Registered Voters. In Likely Voters - the ones who will show up - he leads by only one point, which is in the margin of error.

Umm, no. Voters = likely voters + some unlikely voters

So, a likely voter screen is, by definition, more restrictive than the actual electorate. Try again.

Likely Voters are more likely to show up to vote than Registered Voters. It's quite simple.

Yes, but likely voters aren't the only part of the likely electorate. Likely voters are the floor of participation, registered voters the ceiling. Reality is somewhere in the middle. Luckily an unlikely vote counts just as much as a likely vote.

I'm not saying Likely Voters are perfect - far from it. However, it paints a more accurate picture than Registered Voters.

That depends on the tightness of the likely voter screen.

And then you'll start trailing Joni Ernst.

I'm instantly skeptical of a LV screen that generates those types of discrepancies. Remember those from the Presidential that had Obama up by 1 with LV and 11 with RV.

I think Braley is up by 2-3 FWIW

The PPP poll was more than two weeks old. It seems that Ernst's campaign took many hits since then, a fact that even Republicans admit according to Amy Walter.

If I were a Republican, I wouldn't even want Ernst to win. She'll harm the party by being such an embarrassment way more than her individual vote will help.

One senator either way, even when "control" is at stake, means very little. The exact count only matters when one party is approaching 60, and that's pretty unlikely to happen either way in the next 6 years.

And yes, I would say the same thing in real life if the Democrats had nominated a liberal equivalent of her in one of the close races.
