I was confused this morning to find that Senator Clinton had won New Hampshire. Here’s a post from TheAtlantic.com that helps me make sense of my poll knowledge and surprise at the actual results.
Basically, pollsters had Senator Obama’s numbers right (small variance between actual and projected results). They underestimated support for Senator Clinton. Matthew Yglesias offers the undecided voters as one explanation. Upon rereading, I notice that commentor Brian actually pointed out that pollsters had Senator Obama’s numbers right. I wish I’d paid more attention yesterday and today so I could’ve thought of this myself. Well said, Commenter Brian and Blogger Matthew.
