Update: Which pollster was most accurate in 2008 ?

A sharp-eyed Homa Files reader commented that the rankings we posted yesterday were preliminary … and that the Fordham prof. officially published a final listing that has substantially different ranking.

Here’s what we reported yesterday:

According to a published recap by a poli-sci prof at Fordham University, the pre-election projections from 2 polling organizations — Rasmussen and Pew —were right on the money in 2008.

Note that Gallup was near the bottom of the list … joined by the big media organizations – CBS, Reuters, ABC, NBC, WSJ, and Newsweek – which finished dead last.

The finals report still has Gallup, CBS, NY Times, and Reuters (C-SPAN) at the bottom of the heap.

Rasmussen and Pew – the preliminary winners – drop to the middle in the final report.

At the top: McClatchy, CNN and Fox … with Democracy Corps copping the top prize.
