1. PPP (democrat poll) rated most accurate by fordham uni

Good poem amborin, appropriate for this election, but you know how dicey polls get so that one is up this year poor the next;

.. here is a report of the most accurate polling, and of all things happy for dems add another, democratic produced poll 'Public Policy Polling (PPP), was rated MOST ACCURATE, hip hip hoorah!

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.

.. More happy news! out of 28 polls, only 3 were worse than rasmussen & gallup! Rass & Gallup tied for 24th most accurate! erk, shouldn't that be 'least accurate'?????? hahaahaha, go soak your head scott rasmussen, pollrigger extraordinaire!
.. liberal CBS did well too, and NBC, but let's tip the hat to conservative IBD (internat business daily).. associated press was worst, yet I consider them reputable, unbiased, so up one year down the next....
