    No serious pollster claims accuracy of 1%, so these rankings on a single number are just statistical noise, except for those pollsters who deserve low rankings because they were way off. That's particularly true since we don't even have the final voting data yet. The pollsters who were a little more D will move up as it comes in, PPP will move down. The only robust point here is that the most R pollsters were way off.

    Slightly finer comparisons will be possible using state polls, since there we have a collection of numbers to compare.
