Feeding the hunger for House polling, continued

We now enter week two of The Hill’s series of district by district polls in pre-selected close races. Week one had some good results for Republicans and week two seems to say much of the same.

Once again, I’m not a big fan of the public House polling that’s out there. It’s not done often enough by enough pollsters in any one district for me to feel particularly comfortable in covering it.

Polling is by its nature a probabilistic activity. One poll, one time could mean everything or it could mean nothing. We need multiple polls to even begin to get a good idea of a situation.

So I link to these hoards of polling for reader interest, but I don’t personally plan to use them in any substantive way.
