Canadian pollsters facing more scrutiny

December 30th, 2011 · 20 Comments

A relevant article from the Toronto Star that will be of interest here, given the number of strange and, as it turns out, completely erroneous polls that were published in the two months leading up to the election, e.g. the NPA poll that said Suzanne Anton was running neck and neck with Gregor Robertson, a Forum Research poll that said the same, and another Forum Research poll that indicated Robertson’s popularity was low.

As local politics junkies will know, only Barb Justason’s polls and, as it turned out later, Strategic Communications’ polls from Vision’s in-house pollster Bob Penner, were accurate.
