Fordham Study: Public Policy Polling Deemed Most Accurate National Pollster In 2012

Source: TPM

Fordham University has published a ranking of the most accurate pollsters of the 2012 in terms of national trends, and (both) top spots were held by Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, the North Carolina-based firm.

Director of Fordham's Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy, Dr. Costas Panagopoulos, based the study on pre-election polling and compared it against the results from election day.

"For all the ridicule directed towards pre-election polling, the final poll estimates were not far off from the actual nationwide vote shares for the two candidates," Panagopoulos said in a statement. Here's the whole list:

1. PPP (D)*

1. Daily Kos/SEIU/PPP*

3. YouGov*

4. Ipsos/Reuters*

5. Purple Strategies

6. NBC/WSJ

6. CBS/NYT

6. YouGov/Economist

9. UPI/CVOTER

10. IBD/TIPP

1. We all knew Razz was a joke, but Gallup screwed up what was once a fairly decent reputation. I....

where is ras, gallup, toe sucking morris' poll, cnn, abc and the rest of the right wing bullshit polls huh. I'm surprised about purple strategies tho, and oh PEW, pew pew. And guess what, I read that Pres O won with 18% more women, figure that. Didn't pew, ras, gallup, abc and the others claim that Pres O had lost that advantage?

LOL
