April Baer's story on January 22 had the lead, "Voter support for Measures 66 and 67 is slipping, according to a poll by Davis, Hibbitts & Midghall. That sets the stage for an extremely tight race." I wonder if this was an accurated characterization of the poll and more importantly what the impacts of the lead were. Today on Think Out Loud, Tim Hibbitts said that the poll did a pretty good job of predicting the results. He said they were a bit low on the margin of victory. Could this story lead have galvanized the "yes" side to work harder for passage. I know it prompted me to make a few calls to secure some yes votes.
