CNN Ditches Its Polling Firm of More Than 10 Years Amid ‘Fake News’ Charges



By: Katherine Rodriguez
12 Aug 2017

CNN announced that after ten years, it parted ways this week with its longtime polling firm, ORC International, amid charges of fake news and faulty polls.

ORC’s chief marketing officer Ana Mackay-Sim confirmed that CNN “did not renew their polling contract” with ORC International. The polling firm worked with CNN since 2006 and had continued their partnership after the 2016 presidential election until late April.

Notice CNN doesn't give a reason to why they were done with this polling company.

Is Stu and others like him just assuming it's because of so called FakeNews#?

I also noticed and someone can correct me is that the polls in question are from Sep/Oct of 2016

Where's November when the polls tightened up more?  Huh

I didn't notice any date given for the polls mentioned in the last three paragraphs of the article.  It could have been in November or earlier.  Uncertain material given.

Quote:
The public’s distrust of polls, in CNN’s case, may have to do with some of the final 2016 presidential election polls in some swing states being off greater than the margin of error.
CNN/ORC International’s poll of who would win the 2016 general election in Pennsylvania showed Hillary Clinton leading by four points, when election results showed that Trump won by 0.7 points.
In Nevada, the CNN/ORC International poll showed Trump ahead of Clinton by six points, when Clinton won the state by 2.7 points.


Polling stinks and I don't know why people put so much trust in it, including all of the newscasters.  I guess it's the easiest way to do the news and to sound pontifical.

Actually, I did go to the polls in question, much as I despise polls.  On the Sabbath Day, too.  Shame on you for making me do that.   Cheesy   Grin

Somebody has to make you work, hard or not.  Looks like I'm the early a.m. assignee.  You love it; you know you do.  I guess I better stop before I say, "Was it good for you?"  Whoops.
