GOP pollster on the NBC-WSJ numbers: ‘Significant and consequential’

Overall, this is among the handful of surveys that stand out in my career as being significant and consequential, so, I wanted to make sure you had an opportunity to review the survey.

I would also say this about my general experience with this type of data – 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, Lehman collapse, debt ceiling in 2011 – once there is this level of movement and change, it takes months for things to settle down in a way that is stable and easier to understand. … From a Republican perspective, there is comfort though that the next federal election is a year plus away.
