    As some of you may know, I'm a stats guy irl. I do heavy duty shit with statistics.
    Well, I'm now on board with the Obama campaign and am analyzing some of their internal polling.

    Now before you ask I can't tell you anything about the content therein. Or else, I get sued.

    So, with that in mind, do you guys think it will be possible to participate in discussions on this board *about non-Obama campaign polling* (like, say, the latest NBC poll) without tipping my hand as to what it is I know, exactly?

    I'm not so sure it can be done. What says the crowd?

    5. Not after you've already outed yourself as having access to their data.
    I don't even want to SUSPECT that I'm seeing their internal data being released to the public.

    15. Your post asks and answers your own question
    You already know the answer. As a professional myself, let me state the obvious - of course you can't discuss without tipping your hand. You could have if you hadn't posted this missive, so clearly your conscience was bothering you!

    to remove the contradictions
    that would suck, though.

    oh, this post didn't really *tip my hand* though. I had revealed my intentions to work for the campaign to some other DUers. It wold have gotten out.

    18. Don't do it
    It is compromising your integrity as a professional. As much as we would like to get the juicy details, you have to resist the urge.

    19. Oh I would never intentionally spill anything
    I was just wondering if anyone thought it was humanly possible not to...but I think that's been answered.

    20. I worked for the Obama campaign
    so I am devoid of any illusion that they do anything other than fly by the seats of their pants at all times and are run by a bunch of college students.
