Poll Position

Before anyone gets carried away with polls saying Romney is carrying it away, Riehlworldview notes this: “Reuters-Ipsos poll released earlier today that finds Mitt Romney with a 21-point lead in South Carolina. Reuters-Ipsos has Romney at 37%, with Ron Paul and Rick Santorum at 16% each.

It’s hardly worth singling out given that it was conducted online and polled as many Democrats as Republicans, while using registered, not likely voters. I’m not sure there could be a weaker methodology.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online from January 10-13 with a sample of 995 South Carolina registered voters. It included 398 Republicans and 380 Democrats.”
