My takeaway (near the bottom of the atricle) -
We’re likely to see a real semantic scrum over the next few weeks as partisans seek to define the territory that the bill [Jobs] occupies. Pollsters, whether knowingly or not, will be a part of that battle. I would advise them to use multiple question variants where possible, taking a larger sample and splitting it into halves or thirds, and I would advise readers to be suspicious of articles that cherry-pick one or two polls without discussing the broader context.
