  •  Yeah, the Mason Dixon poll in Utah had to be (5+ / 0-)

    RETRACTED!  It showed Jim Matheson losing to Mia Love 52-40 (he won last night), and the democrat losing the Salt Lake County Mayor's race (he won last night too).  Even when they published a new poll to replace the retracted one, they got the Matheson race incredibly wrong at 50-43 for Mia Love).

    The poll had been commissioned by the Salt Lake Tribune, and was published 4 days ago.  The revised poll came out yesterday.  The Tribune acknowledged that the original poll oversampled republicans.  Apparently the revised poll may have too!

    Unbelievable.

    Hey, Republicans, the whole world is watching.
