Last week, I noted a SurveyUSA poll showing the repeal proposition "trails by 16 points today and is headed for defeat." Also noted the same day was a USC/LA Times/SurveyMonkey poll showing Prop. 62 down by 11%. Neither of these polls asked about the reform measure, Prop. 66.
Now we have a poll done by Field and IGS, the same organization as the first poll above, that has a dramatically different result. This one shows repeal at 48% yes, 37% no, and 15% undecided, while the reform measure is at 35% yes, 23% no, and 42% undecided.
As Seinfeld would say, what's up with that? Has there been a dramatic shift in public opinion since the first IGS poll? Not likely, given the essentially consistent results on 62 in the other two recent polls.
When I see dramatic differences like this in polls, the first thing I suspect is wording of the questions.
