Public Policy Polling put out new numbers today on the possible general election match ups for Governor in North Carolina. They showed Democrats winning all eight possible matches. You can see the full results here.
This apparently did not bode well with the McCrory campaign. So they sent someone to the Under the Dome blog to attack our poll on the grounds that it was biased because we had more Democrats in our sample than Republicans.
Anyone with a lick of knowledge about polling knows that you need to weight your sample to fit the political demographics of the state- and there are more folks who identify themselves as Democrats in NC than there are Republicans- especially in the current political climate. We actually had a smaller percentage of Democrats in our poll- 47%- than the right leaning Civitas Institute did in a poll they released today- 49%.
Anyway I was curious to know who this guy was attacking us. I don't want to spam BlueNC by posting the whole thing here but you can get the very interesting answer on the PPP blog here.
