LA Times Bureau Chief Defends Poll: We Got “President Obama’s Reelection Margin Right”
Here, the Bureau Chief of the LA Times explains his methodology and defends his numbers:
David Lauter: It’s a balanced mix weighted to be representative of the population as a whole…
Megyn Kelly: How confident are you because of course your poll is an outlier?
David Lauter: Well, of course, we don’t have a crystal ball so you never really know. But this group at USC that is doing a poll with us they did the same technique four years ago and they produced a very accurate poll. They were one of the only polls that got President Obama’s reelection margin right. So we think they’re doing a good job.
