  •  they completely f'ed up 2 utah races (0+ / 0-)

    in polling for the SLTrib they first found democrats losing by -12 and -10 in the UT-04 (Matheson-Love) and Salt Lake County Mayor races respectively.

    then a few days later they tell the Trib there'd been some kind of screw-up and the real numbers should be democrats losing by -7 and -1.

    then on election day the democrats win those races by +1 and +10.

    so Mason-Dixon was off by 13 and 20 points originally (!), and off by 8 and 11 points in their "do over" numbers (!!).
