1/Regarding the polling coming out now: Nate Silver put these early polling stats together in 2011. He updated the data here: fivethirtyeight.com/features/what-… What moves someone up in the polls the most? Name recognition. Who has the most name recognition right now? Biden and Sanders.
2/The thing with name recognition and media coverage: it's a 'self-perpetuating cycle'. If you have name recognition➡️the media tends to cover you more ➡️which helps with your polling➡️which helps you fundraise➡️ so you can create more ads➡️which gives you more name recognition
3/I've talked a lot about 'Horse-Race', 'Game Framing', & 'Script based' coverage on here and my podcast. That's what the media & statisticians are doing right now. It's 'poll-driven' coverage. They're looking to create conflict, excitement, and competition.
