    Most polls are generally based on surprisingly small samples.

    So, apparently....

    Typically, polls ask people which candidate they favor or lean toward. Those who say they donít know or are undecided donít get factored into calculations of candidate support.

    The Daybreak poll, by contrast, asks voters, using a 0-to-100 scale, to rate their chances of voting for Clinton, for Trump or for some other candidate. As a result, everyone who responds to the survey has some impact on the results. Because that approach gathers information from everyone in the poll sample, it should give a better read on the many voters who remain ambivalent about their choices.
