  •  ARG Actually Did Very Well in the General (0+ / 0-)

    They were among the closest in calling the national numbers (53-45) and also did quite well in a number of states.

    It is also relevant that they are based in NH, although they didn't do better in that state in the GE than in several others.

    Still, ARG deserves a little more props than this.

      Find ANYONE who's ever received a call from them.  

      They never release any of their data, they don't say who pays for their polls, there's zero transparency, and their numbers bounce all over the place.

    •  Agree w/ DHinMI above, but (0+ / 0-)

      you are right, they were oddly better during the GE for Prez polls.

      In-state though, they are a mess.  And as DH says, utter lack of transparency.

      Between them and UNH we are really in the polling dumps. Which is why I'm happy to see the Concord Monitor using Research 2000.  Their sampling was excellent this cycle.
