Cook Political/KFF Blue Wall Project shows Warren leading in WI, MN and MI, Biden leads in PA




Key Findings

The Kaiser Family Foundation and Cook Political Report have embarked on a new project examining the attitudes and experiences of voters in several key battleground states leading up the 2020 presidential election. The Blue Wall Voices Project is a unique state-based polling project that relies on an innovative probability-based approach to conducting public opinion polls using a combination of telephone and online methodologies. Drawing from voter registration lists, KFF and Cook Political Report have conducted interviews with 3,222 voters in the four states constituting the “Democratic Blue Wall” – the area in the Upper Midwest that was previously considered a Democratic stronghold, and where state polls performed poorly in 2016 and underestimated support for President Trump. The data analyzed is from 767 voters in Michigan, 958 voters in Minnesota, 752 voters in Pennsylvania, and 745 voters in Wisconsin. For more details, please see the methodology section of this report. the poll was conducted September 23rd – October 15th, 2019.

...The poll relies on an innovative probability-based methodology designed to address shortcomings with telephone-only surveys based on either voter-registration rolls or random-digit dialing. Voters were contacted via mailing address using registration-based sampling and encouraged to participate in the survey either online or by telephone and follow-up contacts were made using outbound telephone calls. Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish either online (2763), by calling in to complete (255), or throughout outbound telephone interviews (204). The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 2 percentage points for the full sample. For results based on subgroups, the margin of sampling error may be higher.

Michigan: With more than four months before the 2020 Michigan Democratic primary, Senator Elizabeth Warren garners the most support among likely Democratic primary voters followed by Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders. One-fourth of Michigan Democratic primary voters say Senator Warren is their first choice for the 2020 Democratic ticket and a combined 43% of voters say she is their first choice or second choice.

Minnesota: With more than four months left before the 2020 Minnesota Democratic primary, Senator Elizabeth Warren garners the most support among likely Democratic primary voters followed by Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Vice President Joe Biden, and Senator Bernie Sanders. One-fourth of Minnesota Democratic primary voters say Senator Warren is their first choice for the 2020 Democratic ticket and a combined 43% of voters say she is their first choice or second choice.

Pennsylvania: With more than six months before the Pennsylvania Democratic primary, Vice President Joe Biden, a Pennsylvania native, is the first choice among Democratic primary voters. One-fourth (27%) of Democratic primary voters chose Vice President Biden as their first choice of 2020 Democratic candidates followed by 18% of Democratic primary voters who chose Senator Elizabeth Warren and 14% who chose Senator Bernie Sanders. Senator Warren and Vice President Biden have a relatively similar share of first choice and second choice votes with more than one-third of voters selecting either candidate as their first or second choice.

Wisconsin: With about five months before Wisconsin’s 2020 primary election, about one in five Democratic voters say Senator Warren (22%) and Vice President Biden (17%) are who they plan to support during the Democratic primary. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who won the Wisconsin primary in 2016 when he challenged former Senator Hillary Clinton for the nomination, is currently garnering 10%. Notably, about four in ten (41%) Wisconsin Democratic primary voters select Senator Warren as their first or second choice compared to one in four Democratic primary voters who select Vice President Joe Biden as their first or second choice while one in five (21%) say Senator Sanders is their first or second choice.

Few Democratic voters see progressive positions as deal breakers in their 2020 vote. The Blue Wall Voices Project also sought to find out whether the progressive positions being discussed by the Democratic nominees for president on the campaign trail are deal breaker issues for voters. Overall, a majority of voters in the Blue Wall who plan to vote for the Democratic nominee view the progressive platforms asked about in this survey as “good ideas,” including majorities of voters in each of the four states. None of these issues are deal breakers, with most voters saying that if a candidate disagrees with them on this issue then there would still be a chance that they would vote for them.

37. It is not false...and at least I don't post negative stuff about Warren...just that I think other

 

candidates have a better chance of winning the general...and this poll as I am sure you know because you are smart is extremely flawed and doesn't make the case that either Warren or Sanders can win the Mid West. I actually think Sanders has a better shot at the Mid West as he has ties there from 16...so if for some reason Biden was unable to continue running and I don't think that will happen... I do believe Biden will be the nominee and beat Trump...but if there was some reason, Sanders is my second choice...he has a chance at least. How good it is who knows?

5. This is ridiculous...first of all paid participants sent an invitation...and Joe is still in the

 

top two...I checked out the method and sample size...less than a thousand per each state...and invitation only...also used registered voters not likely voters. You may think I am nitpicking but I find this underwhelming based on the methods.

"The Blue Wall Voices Project was designed and analyzed by public opinion researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) in collaboration with the Cook Political Report. The survey was conducted September 23rd – October 15th, 2019, among a representative random sample of 3,222 registered voters in four states (767 in Michigan, 958 in Minnesota, 752 in Pennsylvania, and 745 in Wisconsin) constituting the “Democratic Blue Wall” – the area in the Upper Midwest that were previously considered Democratic strongholds, and where state polls performed poorly in 2016 and underestimated support for President Trump. All registered voters included in the sample were sent an invitation letter including a link to complete the survey online, a toll-free number that respondents could call to complete the survey with a telephone interviewer, and $2 pre-incentive. Respondents who were living in Census block-groups identified as low-education and respondents identified as likely Hispanic were offered $10 post-incentive if they completed the survey. A random half of respondents received a QR code on their invitation letters. All respondents were then sent a reminder postcard, which included a QR code for all respondents."

13. More was directly due to Nixon's and

 

Kissinger's sabotage of Johnson's attempted peace negotiations. But we didn't about learn that until much, much later.

Please see: When a Candidate Conspired With a Foreign Power to Win An Election at https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/08/06/nixon-vietnam-candidate-conspired-with-foreign-power-win-election-215461

Brief excerpt:

...
Other calls were steeped in intrigue. In one series of scribbles, Haldeman reported Henry Kissinger’s willingness to inform on his U.S. diplomatic colleagues, and keep Nixon updated on President Lyndon Johnson’s furious, eleventh-hour efforts to end the Vietnam War.

Haldeman, 42, was Nixon’s campaign chief of staff, a devoted political adjutant since the 1950s. In late October 1968, the two men connected on what came to be known as “the Chennault Affair.” Nixon gave Haldeman his orders: Find ways to sabotage Johnson’s plans to stage productive peace talks, so that a frustrated American electorate would turn to the Republicans as their only hope to end the war.

The gambit worked, and the Chennault Affair, named for Anna Chennault, the Republican doyenne and fundraiser who became Nixon’s back channel to the South Vietnamese government, lingered as a diplomatic and political whodunit for decades afterward. ...


Much more at the link.

*************
I have loathed Kissinger and Nixon for years and likely always will.

12. They polled fewer than 300 likely Dem voters per state, they PAID the respondents, and their

 

findings for support for Sanders in particular in MI and WI look way off from earlier polls of those states. (As for Minnesota, the support for Klobuchar as a favorite daughter is likely to have switched to Biden by the time the Minnesota primary rollas around.)

And the polling is from the last week of September and the first two weeks of October, before Warren found herself on the defensive and unable to answer questions in the October debate.

These are the numbers of Democratic likely voters in this poll, provided at 538:

WI 274
PA 246
MN 249
MI 208

too many of them, and there have been plenty of other polls to look at.

And I don't know how good a reputation this poll has since it's not rated by 538.

I do know the sample size is very small. Nate Silver pointed out earlier this fall that polls like that are more likely to be wrong:

32. Well, people look for good polling news where they can find it.

 

And I can't fault them for that, really.

I remember posting at least one poll here that was good news for Sanders supporters in part because it was good news for them, on a day when another poll had had bad news:

https://www.democraticunderground.com/1287127224

That had Sanders tied with Biden in Iowa back in May.

Paying poll respondents strikes me as really odd, though. And while I can't be sure, I'd think that would tend to skew poll results toward candidates who were promising various free benefits.
