Gallup Fail

Jonathan Chait ‏@jonathanchait
Final Gallup projected whites at 78.5% of the electorate. Actual result: 72%. Enormous difference, total Gallup fail.


Any sentient and numerate person knew that projection was a fail. Right wingers clung to it like a drowning person clings to a life preserver.


Gallup and Rasmussen, the worst pollsters in the world.

2. I think they were using 2010 as their LV model.....

But I think they knew better, but it was the only way to get the results they were seeking.
