Shea-Porter (D) 47%
Other 1%
Don't Know/Undecided 6%

October 29-November 2; 405 LV; MoE +/- 4.9

Without leaners, it was 45-41-1-14 Guinta.  UNH's prediction, with zero undecideds, is 50-49-1 Guinta.

How is this junk again? I believe Shea-Porter will win, but 47 all doesn't sound that unreasonable.

UNH is very swingy. Their NH-2 poll swung from Garcia+4 to Kuster+23 to Kuster+11 in the last three polls.

Garcia got caught plagiarizing a few floor speeches, but Walsh only dropped about ten points for his plagiarism. Hell, Akin only dropped 20 points in the polls after his legitimate rape comments. Completely implausible swings in public opinion lead to a junk firm.

Yeah, but their penultimate polls were all wildly off. I think this was true in 2012 as well (or maybe 2008). I guess the lesson is: only listen to UNH's final polls.
