What's going on with IFOP ? I really don't understand...

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

It's really a mess in their daily rolling poll, because they don't give the daily sample and they change the sample each night !!!
And for their other polls , they don't say if it's different or not from their daily one and you're forced to entail it from their foggy comments...
They seemed the most reliable this cycle, but frankly, they are essentially here to make big money... and they don't care about political geeks...

Actually they are polling all the day long, and use the data from day-1 at noon to day-3 at noon so it's a little messy because at the beginning they were using all the day-1, all the day-2 and all the day-3 (hope it's crystal clear, but I'm not sure). But you can infer the daily sample by substracting the daily sample to the one of the day before, right?

Concerning the other online poll they released earlier today, it was done during only two days. They used the daily tracking sample (about 660 people), and added about 700 interviews in order to have a large sample.

Well, clearly they are good at trying new things (even if I'm a bit conservative - on this aspect Smiley - and prefer telephone polls than online survey) but completely messy. I definitely prefer less vocal but more reliable pollsters like TNS Sofres and IPSOS.

Unfortunately no, because, one day it's day D-3 plus day D-2 plus day D-1 plus day D.
The next one, it's the same plus day D+1. and then it's only D-1, D, D+1 and D+2. And then, only 3 days, etc.
It's completely erratic and you can't infer some daily samples because the total samples are never calculated with the same number of daily samples in them.

If it's always such a pain in the ass, you should maybe just ignore the daily tracking poll. It's not like you need it with all the polls we get each week, and it also seems to be pretty off compared to other pollsters.

Non non non, my explanation above is false actually, but it's so confusing than I hope you will excuse me Smiley : they use the data from day-1 at noon, day-2, day-3 and day-4 before noon, which makes exactly three days. They use this method every day, even if sometimes they themselves make mistakes in their reports, saying the filed only last 3 days... But actually I'm not sure if you can find the daily samples since they don't use full days...

I hope one day Gallup will come back in France !

But one day the sample is 866, the next one 945 and the one after that 1176. And then back to 960 or 877...
And as they don't publish it on Saturdays and Sundays...
It's really impossible to infer daily samples.

I hate them: it's like promising to give you chocolate and then be obliged to only look at it through a window Grin

Nope. As sad as this sounds, nobody cares about Legislative elections because whoever wins the prez elections has its party winning legislative elections too. Le Monde published a nice analysis a couple months ago about the political trends of France and forecasting possible results of the 2012 legislatives, but they still didn't bother enough to ask for a poll...

It was a different story when the presidential term was seven years and there would always be "mid term" legislative election outside of the presidential election cycle in France. Now the legislative election to

Just read on SPIEGEL Online that Angela Merkel is planning to actively campaign for Sarkozy. This unprecedented move has supposedly pissed off Hollande and the French socialists pretty bad.

Any word on this in French media??

Yep, this has been mentioned a couple weeks ago.

Honestly, I don't see how this could help Sarko. It's too late for him to make people buy into his new "sound, responsible and experienced" persona. And it's not like Merkel is much loved around here. Grin Maybe mine is wishful thinking, though...
