NBC poll that shows Hillary ahead by 5% contained no independent voters

“The Republican National Convention did not result in a post-convention bounce for Trump.

Clinton also saw a bounce in a four-way general election match-up against Trump, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Clinton now leads Trump by 5 points — 43 percent to 38 percent — in the four-way race. This is a lead-reversal from last week, when Trump was beating the Democratic nominee by 2 points. Support for Johnson (9 points) and Stein (4 points) remained virtually unchanged from last week.”

And here is the methodology

  1. Since there’s no such thing – outside of very few places like NYC – of being a “registered” Independant voter.. YOUR article is what is leading.

    Over half the sample is of “registered voters” outside of the registered “Dems” and registered “Repubs.”

    Sheesh!

    • Really? I am a registered voter in Florida; you know that very important swing state. I am registered as NPA- No party affiliation. “Sheesh!”

    You guys are pretty sloppy

    • If you are going to vote, you have to register. If you are not Dem or Repub, you are independent and thus you are a registered independent voter. Only a few place like NYC actually have an independent party. Right now independent voters, yes, they are registered, make up 39% of the electorate. Commenting on something without knowing the facts is what is sloppy
