Pas mal.

Yeah, quite.

As for me, I was definitely too conservative in my prediction and failed to grasp any of the major trends at their real level. Though, at least, I didn't put Sarko ahead. Grin

GO TO HELL ! Grin

At least, my tracker was right, though I didn't evcen trust it Tongue

Maybe you can re-post these graphs in the Official Thread, Hash has just unlocked it Wink

And add another point on the graph for the tracker with vote transfers ? As you wish...

On my blog, I've also calculated totals of spreads (or deviations) for each candidate BUT in a ratio with the result of each candidate: a "mistake" of 0.5 point isn't very important for Hollande, for example.

Harris has published the best last poll, in fact: good order, quite fine results and, especially, least bad numbers on Le Pen and Mélenchon.

For me, it's a surprising winner, rather than TNS-Sofres, OpinionWay, IFOP and IPSOS, though they have done quite well, but each with something wrong. But Harris was already the best for the PS primary... keep that in mind for the next years to come...

CSA, LH2 and BVA were clearly less good than the others.

One of the very few good things I can see from these results is that at least Melenchon underperformed. He's easily the most horrible of the 5 main candidates.

Only compared to the final few weeks of polling. His result was considerably better than would have seemed sane to predict last year and was the best for a Commie candidate since 1981.

More extreme right wingers reluctantly vote for Sarkozy, more centrists vote for Hollande. Since there are more of the former, Hollande underperfoms the current polls.

51.5% Hollande
48.5% Sarkozy

Narrows somewhat as Le Pen voter break easier for Sarko, but Hollande eeks out a victory.

Hollande-53%
Sarkozy-46%

I think given the trajectory of this thing that Hollande will likely win Sunday. However, given that alot of surprises have happened so far I wouldn't rule out a Sarkozy win. Ex. it wasn't originally projected that Le Pen would even break 15% but she managed to take nearly 21%. Wouldn't be surprised if these right-wing voters choose to tolerate Sarkozy over someone like Hollande.

De Gaulle's didn't set the record. If someone did, it's Pompidou in 1969 (winning 57.5% to Poher's 42.4%).

(Naturally, we're talking about two mainstream candidates in a runoff, which rules out any comparisons to 2002).

From the official thread:

BREAKING NEWS !
2012 Big Bad Tracker #55 - 4 May 2012   



My very last tracker !!! Tongue      

With raw datas :
Hollande 52.95
Sarkozy 47.05

With vote transfers datas applied to real first round results:
Hollande 52.97
Sarkozy 47.03

No, I haven't cheated.

Simple average of all the last polls of each pollster, without weighting: 52.75 / 47.25
Weighted average of all the last polls of each pollster: 52.70 / 47.30



And my own prediction: Hollande 52.2 / Sarkozy 47.8

I'll go on a more pessimistic note and say:

Hollande, 50.9%
Sarkozy, 49.1%

I will go a bit optimistic. Polls will boost pro-Hollande turnout and result will be:
Hollande: 53.65%
Sarkozy: 46.35%
