2016 – RIP Telephone Polling!

Will 2016 be the year that telephone polling finally dies? It has been a tumultuous few years for the Telephone Polling industry, with all the new technology it is getting harder and harder to find people to poll. Perhaps this is the reason that 2012 polling fell so far short of reality. How far off will the current polling companies numbers be for 2016?

Now comes the mobile revolution. With telephones no longer tied to a building in a state instead free to roam the country. People living in say Pennsylvania have a NH Area Code. Plus there is no real directory of cell phones.

Yet here we are today, letting the media decide who is a candidate and who isn’t based on a known flawed system, telephone polling.

I predict the IA caucus and NH Primary will show that those who the main stream media have been touting as Front Runners will actually be laggards.


Work Hard Have Fun!
