Florida polls and the media - let's rethink the whole thing

Q-poll McCollum 39, Scott 35

This Qunnipiac Poll has a margin of error of plus/minus 3.5 percent suggesting that even with Bill McCollum at 39 and Rick Scott at 35, the race is too close to call in tomorrow's Republican primary for Florida governor.

Polling has been all over the place with some really awful reporting about some of the polls that are out there.

Crowley Political Report continues its warning to readers to be very wary of polling data. Qunnipiac interviewed 771 likely Republican primary voters. They polling was done during the period Aug. 21-22.

We will take a deeper look at polling this year in a future post.
