I Did Not See That Coming

The headline is no lie — I’m slightly slackjawed by this report from Javier Manjarres:

Take this for what it’s worth- the Suffolk University Political Research Research Center will no longer be polling the 2012 Presidential race in three battleground states- North Carolina (not so surprising) Virginia and Florida (very surprising).

During an interview on last night’s O’Reilly Factor, David Paleologos,the Research Center Director for Suffolk University stated the following-

I think in places like North Carolina, Virginia and Florida, we’ve already painted those red, we are not polling any of those states again. We’re focusing on the remaining states.

What’s interesting about this statement is that Suffolk’s most recent poll of Florida Likely Voters conducted at the end of September and published right before the first debate actually had President Obama with a 46-43 lead over Mitt Romney with a D+5 sample.

Suffolk University is no fly-by-night partisan polling outfit. So… um… dang.
