Uri:

Does this overlap with the 4/15-4/16 survey from the day before ?

____________________

It doesn't state in the article if this is a daily tracking poll or if this is a separate sample. But, yes - both polls share the date of 4/16 (last of the 2 days in the first poll, first of the 2 days of the second poll). Zogby seems to imply that the spread was the same over the 2 days in the second poll.

Mark Blumenthal:

@Uri - yes, this is part of a two-day rolling average tracking survey, so today sample does overlap.

@Thatcher - thanks!

Mark, A question about these tracking polls like Gallup and Rasmussen. Do they just do a simple arithmetic mean of the relevant days e.g. Gallup adds up candidate preferences for last three days and divide by 3 or something more complicated (I read somewhere about smoothing but not sure what that means)? Thanks
