September 28, 2012 12:05 PM Latest Poll Results: 56%-44%

By Andrew Gelman

From the Round Rock Leader:

Everybody’s laughing about this poll but it looks accurate to me! According to the official figures, voter turnout in Texas in the last presidential election was 46% of the voting-age population. So 44% seems like a reasonable guess for this year.

    But then every once in a while, someone does something like this just for the humor of the situation, like a Matuszewski telling a Pollack joke.
