28. October 7th was YESTERDAY...

I'm more curious about the daily distribution of samples -- although the poll is entirely post-debate, it includes both the Friday which other polls suggest was a big pro-Romney day, and a Sunday which, likewise, seems to have been a big Obama day. How many samples in the Pew survey were taken on each day? If approximately equal, that could indicate we've still got a problem. If more samples were taken Thursday-Friday, it could provide a more logical explanation. In any event, I'd be leery of any non-tracker taken before today -- there was simply too much volatility from Thursday through Sunday to draw conclusions from a poll taken sometime in that period.
