FAQ: Questions about Exit Polls

Since the election, I have written quite a bit on exit polls.  Although I have learned a lot in that process, my Election Day summary of “what you need to know” about exit polls still holds up well and is a good place to start if you are new to this site. 

Here is the complete list of questions:

  • What is MP's reaction to the paper, "The Unexplained Exit Poll Discrepancy," by Steven Freeman?  (This post dicusses his first draft at length, this post has Freeman's response). 
  • You can also see a summary of all posts about exit polls (in reverse chronological order) by clicking this link.
