Weak for Clinton. PA shouldn't be close at all right now.

We'll just have to see whether an outlier or part of a trend.

But looking at the other state numbers they seem on the overall low side for Clinton... hopefully some other more regular state pollsters come out soon.

Seems like the preponderance of evidence is indeed pointing to a tightening race...

Best to wait...

Anyway,
PPP will post their results for the general election this week, so if indeed the race has tightened, PPP will be a good indicator!

Actually, I'm still incredibly wary of any national PPP poll. They were horrible in 2012 on that front.

PPP didn't seem to perform any national polls last time, and every other pollster appeared to get the national percentages wrong. 2012 was just a bad year for pollsters.

They did, but for clients like Daily Kos. They were universally terrible.

Honestly.... I think just bad samples. You can explain a lot with this or that, but to that degree?
