What Polling Numbers Should You Trust

October 2, 2012 in News

Interesting polling facts from previous elections are supplied by electoralmap.net Their report shows who was accurate and who was not in prior elections.

Below is the report from the 2008 election on polling accuracy. Meaning: who gave the best “heartbeat” of what the population was thinking. The part that makes us scratch our head is, wouldn’t you want to use a company who gets the best score to report from? Most major news outlets look at Rasmussen Reports (who is ranked #1) as a far right fringe group and shouldn’t be considered for use.

We use Rasmussen Reports in our reporting unless stated different.
