More on the Pan Atlantic Poll

Looking through the data, a couple of things jump out immediately.

First, the poll produced a downright eccentric result in the presidential match-up: Sen. Obama (D-IL) over Sen. McCain (R-AZ) by 46% to 32% including leaners. There aren't many other statewide independent polls that have found such a large chunk of the electorate unwilling to commit to Obama or McCain.

Also of note: While the poll was released today, some of the data is as much as one month old. And even the newest data is three weeks old.

Neither of these factors invalidates the poll in any way, or suggests its results should be shrugged off.

But it certainly seems that Pan Atlantic has their own way of doing things.
