|3 big errors pop out at me while giving this a cursory glance:
1. They sample 33% Rs and 34% Ds...in reality, Ds have about a 7 point advantage, so Ds have been undersampled while Rs have been oversampled
2. They sample 24% of voters from the 703 area code (northern VA), but 23% from the 540 (Roanoke and other small, rural areas)...NoVa has been tragically undersampled while the 540 has been oversampled
3. Finally, deeds is only leading women 45-44...this just can't be true, especially since his favorability ratings among women are MUCH better than McDonnell's.
I normally love PPP, but it seems like they are very much off the mark this time.
