Here Is List Of Most Accurate National Polls In Presidential Election

November 8, 2012

Geek alert.

Recall how the Republicans kept repeating that the presidential polls were wrong, stacked, political, loaded, biased, etc?

Not so fast Bunky, in fact the polls were really most revealing.

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.

“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:
