If These Polls Swing Any More Violently, We’ll All Need Neck Braces


Dear SurveyUSA,

I like you guys, but did Meg Whitman’s lead over Steve Poizner in the GOP gubernatorial primary in California really go from 22 percentage points in April to 2 points in early May to 27 points now? Really?

Is it possible that in early May you accidentally called Poizner’s campaign office a lot? No?

Just wondering.

UPDATE: Oh, and McLaughlin & Associates puts it at 26 percentage points today.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Oh, and PPP puts Whitman’s lead at 25 percentage points.
