If accurate then this has implications on how the Midwestern White vote is swinging.  If so then places like WI and MN will be a lot closer than one might think as well, to a smaller extent, MI.

Yeah. It is why that poll (if correct) is GREAT news for Donald J Trump.

Iowa for Trump = White working class for Trump. = Mid- and somewhat Northwest are in play.

Selzer uses voter file. Something is going on...

That's not what that means. In the poll, Selzer points out enthusiasm for Hillary is low amongst Bernie supporters and she thinks they're not going to turn out. Hillary is just a bad fit.

To be sure if this is an indicator of a Trump swing in the mid west, we need a quality poll from Wisconsin.


We had a quality poll from Marquette.

I do take issue with Selzer's likely voter model which seems to help Trump so I do think she's got the margin wrong.

I realize that it's heresy to question Selzer but this sample seems very, very off.

They use voter file, so the shares of registred R/D/I should be correct.

CNN shows the 2012 Iowa exit polls at 33 R, 33 D, 34 I.

Edit: Could just be dems identifying as independents, still wouldnt cause that much of a change.

Uh, wasn't he just talking about voters under age 35?

Oh, yep. I replied to LBP without reading the original post.
