The Wisdom of the Crowds #3
A poll for CNN suggested that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton would have a 51%-44% lead over Sen. John McCain in a presidential election, but that Sen. John McCain would have a 48%-47% lead over Sen. Hillary Clinton. Apparently this is backed up by other polling which suggests that more people would vote for Hillary if she uses her maiden name.
I have reflected on this, and I think I need to spend less time reading opinion polls. Out of curiosity, though, I would like to meet the people whose voting intention depends on which form of Clinton's name they are prompted with - do they think it is two different people or something?
