Last Minute Encouragement for Rand Paul: He Does Seem to Do Way Better with Generally Unpolled Cell Phone Users


Corie W. Stephens at Rare sums up some interestingly encouraging last minute polling news via Real Clear Politics. Paul and his campaign have long insisted that the majority of polls were missing their people.

On Sunday, Real Clear Politics added a poll to their election average conducted by Opinion Savvy, which includes voters contacted on their cell phones….

In this poll, the data provided by likely Republican caucus-goers is broken into voters contacted by landline versus those reached on their mobile devices.

Of voters polled on cell phones, Paul is tied for first place with 26.5 percent of the vote. Paul wins outright among voters between the ages of 18-29, capturing 22.5 percent of their vote.

Overall, this poll gives Paul 8.6 percent of the vote, placing him in a tie for 4th (within the poll's margin of error).

My reporting on Rand's campaign and its chances from this morning.
