"Democrat Polling Firms Admit ‘Major Errors’ in 2020 Election Polls" & “Polling industry is a wreck, and should be blown up”
The Epoch Times reported "Democrat Polling Firms Admit ‘Major Errors’ in 2020 Election Polls":
A group of top Democratic Party pollsters released a public statement Tuesday acknowledging “major errors” in their 2020 polling, while venturing several theories they believe may account for the blunders.
“In 2020, our industry saw major errors and failed to live up to our own expectations,” said the statement by ALG Research, Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group, GBAO Strategies, Global Strategy Group, and Normington Petts.
Most preelection polls ahead of the November election overstated
then-presidential candidate Joe Biden’s lead over then-President Donald
Trump, and in some states incorrectly predicted that Biden would win or
that the race would be close. This sparked critical post-election media
commentary, with some asserting that “polling seems to be irrevocably broken,” while others argued that “the polling industry is a wreck, and should be blown up.” [https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/democrat-polling-firms-admit-major-errors-in-2020-election-polls_3773867.html?utm_source=Morningbrief&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=mb-2021-04-14&mktids=c3fec90b6b98f0d1883cadde90b488d2&est=KDg28kqajfGXqpZssE%2BqebbqCd%2BAUL0SKhQ6kQbncyQcu1q2fNYdoliYfABh]
