You’ll remember in yesterday’s episode of TPMtv we noted the vast disparity between Zogby’s and SurveyUSA’s final poll of California and said that one of the two organizations was going to be seriously embarrassed. Well, in the clear light of day, I’d say we have a winner.
Actual Results: Clinton 52%, Obama 42%
SurveyUSA: Clinton 52%, Obama 42%
Zogby Intl: Clinton 36%, Obama 49%
So SurveyUSA literally hit the bullseye, getting the exact percentage, while Zogby was off by a net total of 23 points.
Now, it’s not all crow for Zogby. In Missouri, SurveyUSA had Clinton over Obama by 11 points while Zogby had Obama up by 3. The final result was Obama by 1 point.
Still, California was the big prize and the one with the eye-popping disparity. And SurveyUSA left Zogby in the dust.
