Pollsterpalooza: Who nailed it, who didn’t in pre-primary surveys…by George Bennett | August 25th, 2010
In the two weeks leading up to Tuesday’s Florida primaries, most polls showed GOP establishment favorite Bill McCollum rebounding from outsider Rick Scott’s summer surge and regaining a lead in the Republican governor’s primary.
The most notable exception: Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, which on Monday said its weekend polling showed Scott up by 7 points. Scott appears to have won by just under 3 points.
Here’s the RealClearPolitics.com rundown of all the major GOP governor primary polls.
And here’s its rundown of Democratic Senate primary polls. Everyone had this race trending toward Kendrick Meek, who ended up beating Palm Beach billionaire Jeff Greene by 26.5 points. PPP’s day-before poll had Meek up by 24 points.
