There is no need to tear our hair out and start questioning everything we know because we have forgotten to account for a large constituency that is unlikely to be uniformly distributed across parties or even across political preferences. The problem may or may not be consequential for our analysis, and maybe the stories we have put together still hold after we make the appropriate corrections or after we rethink how to conceptualize nonresponse. That is all I ask for. The public deserves from us no less attention to the details of our analysis than any peer reviewer.
