No, they havenŽt polled lots of races so far, but weren`t bad so far this and last year. Nailed the KY Governor race last year and got Florida right on both sides. In South Carolina, Public Policy Polling did best though. On Supertuesday weŽll know more if we can trust SurveyUSA this year, as they are polling about 10 of the 24 or so races.

Na, Ramunseen is pretty good, and most are reliable. The only ones you can't trust is CNN, FOX and other new networks. Their polling is pretty opff target

Rassmussen's crap on a state level, but good on national.

The Geenberg polls (NPR and Democracy Corps) are pretty good as is PPP.

In the states it polls, Mason-Dixon is excellent.

CBS is pretty consistently the worst of the major national pollsters.

The Newsweek polls are fairly awful.  Gallup's are really bad right now because of how heavily they are weighting democrats in their surveys.  I think PPP and Rasmussen Reports are pretty good.

I have completed a detailed analysis of the internals of two dozen major national pollsters, and have found the following:

Excellent

1.PPP
2.NPR
3.Rasmussen

Terrible

1.CBS
2.Politico
3.Ispos

BTW, you are correct that the Newsweek polls (Princeton Associates) are extremely biased.

What is interesting is that PPP and NPR polls are run by Democrat pollsters (NPR by Clinton's pollster)
