Additions To Yesterday's Polling Stories, With Comments From PPP and High Ground; Excluding Libertarian Makes Poll More Accurate

We received some interesting e-mails this morning in response to our reporting (and our inquiries) on the just-released Public Policy Polling of Arizona voters.  We have updated the article on the poll numbers of the Arizona Obama-Romney (and not Obama-Romney-Johnson) race, and the article on the high number of self-identified Republicans included in the new survey.

In a nutshell, nothing nefarious in PPP's using numbers from a question eliminating the Libertarian candidate from the choices, and the large number of Republicans in the poll may be an indication of turnout and/or good feelings about the GOP.

Thanks to Tom Jensen of PPP and Paul Bentz of High Ground.
