Marissa Dendy Griffin added this note
How in the world is this a likely voter poll? ( See page 25). According to the pollster, this is what they expect to see on Election Day: 59% = Over the age of 51, 54% Female/46% Male, 74.5% White/17.5% Black. However, this is what they actually polled: 83% over the age of 51; 60% Female/40% Male; 84% White/9% Black. This poll is much too old and too white. Do better or get out of the biz.
