2014-8 = 2006 not 2008?

It seems like no one has learnt the lessons of the early days of polling for voting intentions, where they managed to obtain a sample of only people who owned a telephone resulting in bias toward Republican voters. Looking at Twitter we probably have people who are more middle-class, more technologically aware and more opinionated than the average. Nice if that is what you want to sample, but I suspect it isn't what most companies are interested in.
