Gallup’s daily tracking survey showed Mitt Romney with consistent leads over Obama in the final days before the election last fall, eventually leading to widespread criticism of the national polling organization. The Obama team has appeared to relish the post-election pile on. In November, Jim Messina, Obama’s 2012 campaign manager, argued that Gallup has had a shoddy track record in presidential elections “for a long time.”
