Numerical dung

Over at Heads up the Blog, Fred Vultee points to some exquisite numerical dung by Real Clear Politics -- specifically the averaging of results of disparate polls to come up with an "RCP Average."

Back to PoliSci/Stats 101 for those folk.

I like RCP, but that kind of basic error really makes you question the judgment of the folks behind the site.

(In an earlier post, he takes apart The State's inept reporting of recent polls results.)
