What caused Anderson to move so high in mid-1980?

I'm guessing dissatisfaction with both Carter and Reagan among many voters.

You can find all of the national polls from 2000 over at pollingreport.com, even the ones where Gore was beating McCain in early 2000.

What is up with 1944? I had no idea that Roosevelt was that close to Dewey in the months leading to the election, as most accounts I have read of it say...

I'd just guess poor sampling or maybe more FDR voters (who were typically poorer) didn't have access to phones.

Democrats used to underpoll in the 1930's and 40's because it was very difficult to poll many Democratic voters due to them lacking telephones.

I'm surprised LBJ got support in the high 70s in the early summer of 1964. Sure, Goldwater was nuts, but those amrgins are just ridiculous.

What is the deal with that one poll showing Bush leading Clinton 48%-40% in a two person race in June 1992?  I believe Perot didnt drop out until the Democratic convention in July.

I guess Bush led Clinton due to the GOP Convention bounce.

Residual shock from the Kennedy assassination. Imagine if Bush had been running for re-election in early 2002 (with a good economy as well).

The GOP Convention didnt occur until late August.

Thanks for posting this information and all, but it's best if you let the grown-ups talk now.

That is what I suspected; but the 1940 results aren't far off from the total.

I'm surprised Ike and Stevenson were so close near the 1952 election. Was it just a bad sample, or did Ike really overperform (and why)?

It's worth noting that the media was in the tank for Stevenson.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Why, though? Ike was a war hero.

1996 shows a final poll of 55 for Clinton. Then at the top it says the final is 52. Which one is correct?

If you look carefully, the 1996 polls only extend to August (on the chart). I think Gallup's November poll showed 52% for Clinton, while their August poll showed 55% for Clinton.

Clinton has said that he got lazy and apathetic towards the end of the 1996 campaign trail. I wonder why that didn't reflect in the poll.

Because not everything Clinton (or any politician) says is accurate.

Does anyone know how to put charts from this link directly onto here? Those charts are pretty much the same (except for 2004), but they look neater.

Why in the 1992 election, Perot is included in the polls until mid-june, then disappears and reappears in the beginning of September ? What happened at these times ?
