4. The RAW pristine poll data should already be weighted by design.
Edited on Tue Feb-22-05 12:44 AM by TruthIsAll
The CNN 13660 poll is contaminated.

The RAW data is already weighted - if the pollsters did their job correctly in the first place.

The 2004 demographics are correct, by comparing to prior elections, they are right on the money. Focus on PartyID, gender and the new voters (17%).

The misrepresentation and confusion regarding raw vs. weighted data is astounding.

My take:
Good data = Sample (Raw data)
Good votes = Fix (bad votes)
Weighted data = Fix (Raw data).
Weighted data = Good votes
