I asked top Democratic pollster Celinda Lake of Lake Research what she made of the results of the poll of white, non-college voters that Axios published. Here are her points:

1. "It shouldn't have been reported on. It violated all the standards for publication...
"...The AAPOR, AP, CNN guidelines etc require -- rightly so -- release of all findings, release of who did the poll and who paid for it, release of question wording."

2: "The questions were unbelievably biased and the cherrypicking of results even more so....
...We know from other polling: Half of Americans don't know what socialism is. What would results have been if you asked a question which is standard wording -- do you have a favorable rating, an unfavorable rating of socialism or don't you know."
3: "22 percent isn't bad among white, noncollege people. We are only going to get 25-35 percent max. What were numbers among millennials and POC whom we need to turnout?"
4: "Noticeably there is no releasing of college without debt, green new deal, or medicare for all. That's because 56-65 percent of the public support those policies."
And here’s a thing you know if you’ve read my book: Emily’s List tells candidates that if they want the group’s endorsement they have to fire Lake.

They’re happy to recommend other polling firms, but Celinda is blacklisted. It’s utterly bizarre.
