  •  I hope Daily Kos hammers away on this.... (10+ / 0-)

    with multiple front page articles analyzing not only the final accuracy of every single pollster, but also whether their conduct was suspicious (e.g., tendency to report polls out of line with the consensus THROUGHOUT the campaign and/or timed to maintain RCP averages).

    On such a positive day, I'm still angry about about all the stress and doubt these suspect pollsters caused.  

    What about the big names?  Gallup with their huge LV lead for weeks that drove the press narrative so hard?  Their final "correction" poll does not absolve them.

    What about Rasmussen and their wildly inaccurate state polls that so many times seemed time to contradict good news from more respected pollsters.

    Spot on regarding Mason Dixon.  Now I know why NBC dumped them after 2008 and went with Marist.
