About those polls...

Again, both NBC and CBS polled adults, not registered voters or likely voters but what really jumped out at me was this answer in the detail of the CBS/NY Times poll.   
Did you vote for Barack Obama, John McCain or someone else?   Obama 48%. McCain 25%  Someone else 1%  Voted, Won't say whom 5%  Didn't vote 19%  Don't Know/Wouldn't Respond 1%  
The NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll asked almost the identically worded question and got an answer more representative of the actual popular vote.   
For whom did you vote-Barack Obama, John McCain or someone else?   Obama 41%, McCain 32%, Someone else 4%, Not sure 5%, Did not vote/not sure 18%.
