More on the Suffolk poll

This is the one that showed Jon Corzine leading Chris Christie by nine points …
Patrick Murray, who directs the polling institute at Monmouth University, says there are two problem with that poll, one major and one minor. Here they are:

Major: Their likely voter screen let in 93 percent of registered voters. Yes, their likely voter model is based on a 93 percent turnout! And as we have seen in our polling all year, a lot of Dem-leaning, would-be Corzine voters intend to sit this one out.

Minor: they weighted their party ID question to the party registration split.
