Cyclone Conservatives: New ARG Iowa Poll Results Announced

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

Tonight, we see that the American Research Group, a very credible
polling agency, has unleashed a new set of numbers for our fine state
and the presidential race that is fluctuating ever so much. Unlike the
ridiculous and bogus poll announced yesterday by the University of
Iowa, this poll actually has a solid methodology and a reasonable
sample size. I saw several campaigns and media organizations play up
or comment on those results yesterday and I found myself laughing out
loud and rather embarrassed for them. I think it says a lot that we
have a lot of people who fundamentally do not understand statistics or
how to recognize legitimacy in polling. Here in Iowa, that is
disappointing considering the shear quantity of political data we
become immersed in on a regular basis.
