Here are a few short but relevant updates to topics covered earlier in the week that I did not want to get lost at the bottom of older posts:
One thing we overlooked in the Time poll: The self-identified "registered" voters included an even smaller percentage of 18-to-29-year-olds (9% - see QF1) than the "likely voters" in the USA Today/Gallup survey (10%), and six points fewer than the self-ID'd registered voters in the Gallup survey (15%).
One possible reason the uncommitted voters haven’t changed much: they’re paying much less attention to the campaign in the last few weeks.
When asked in mid-July how much attention they’d been paying to the 2008 campaign, generally, 45% said they’d paid a lot and just 14% said not much or none. When asked in this poll how much attention they’d been paying in the last few weeks, only 18% reported paying a lot lately.
