Polling firm Zogby International accurately predicted President Bush's Ohio victory, as well as the defeat of Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle in South Dakota, and accurately forecast the outcome of every Senate race in our final battleground poll, conducted October 29 through November 1, 2004. The margin of error was +/- 4.1 percentage points.

I think he said Kerry would have 311 electoral votes.
Zogby... the Jason Blair of polling.
Zogby has lost all credibility except for democrats who want to be filled with bogus information.
Media Schadenfreude and Media Shenanigans PING
He is spinning like a top. If he was so accurate, why did he call Keryr getting 311 EVs at 5:30pm Tuesday?
See this thread also:
Statement from John Zogby on 2004 Presidential Election Results (CYA spin) ^
That's ok. You'll still have some Freepers harping how Zogby is the most accurate pollster around despite the evidence.
At 5 pm on election day he had Florida and Ohio going to Kerry. I mean who does he think he's fooling. falling into the right result once gave him a sense of his own importance that's been completely refuted. The guy's junk.
He has the accuracy of Dan Rather.
I have this day emailed Mr Zogby and informed him that his credibility as a pollster resides on the trash heap of history.
LOL, this guy called every key state wrong. So he was "within the margin of error" - I could have thrown a dart at a list of numbers and been just as accurate.
At 5.00 pm Zogby was on his way to the Kerry celebration.
Is that like being "the most honest lawyer around"?
I was just thinking of that line when I was wondering about his fate. Sweet.
Anyone who cant hit within +/- 4 (thats an 8 POINT SPREAD folks) should not be charging money for polling
There are lies, damnable lies, statistics, and now zogby polls.
We need to use his name as the left has used Senator McCarthy's.
Zogbyism will forever more be the term for a leftist media snowjob designed to sway public opinion.
example: "The Zogbyism in this campaign almost gave John Kerry an unearned victory."
Excellent. But where Jason Blair just gave leftist media bosses what they wanted to hear, Zogby has a more specific purpose:
Zogby exists to make Democrat election theft look plausible.
Zogby is really delusional.
If you look at his prez state numbers, he consitently understated the President's support by about 3-5% ... I have not run the numbers, and may not get the chance to, but he really blew the states.
That photo actually looks real. If the shoe fits...
I guess I must have been having hallucinations from drinking too much special sauce when I saw Zogman post his 5:00 pm prediction of a Kerry win!
Zogs is toast. He stole the exit poll data and repackaged them in his 5:00 pm "call" so's he could claim to be most accurate in 2004. But it blew up on him bigger than a Pali suicide belt.
I don't see many calls for his predicting services after this "projection". HA
ZOGBY is a muzzy you know.. biding time waiting for 72 virgins.. all muslims are timebombs..
Zog needs another job after one realizes what a liar and front man for the rats he has been while posing as a pollster.
So he would be perfect to be America's Baghdad Zog to defend the Islamofascists, their American political party the Rats, and other enemies of America.
Zogby is trying to have his cake and eat it too. His published numbers were as accurate as he could make them, but starting the Saturday before the election, he started giving interviews interpreting the data and saying that he was detecting a shift toward Kerry and that Kerry would probably win big, etc. But he never changed the individual numbers, because he thinks that his credibility is based on those numbers alone.
He cannot deny, however, that he stood up on Election Day and predicted a big Kerry win in the Electoral College.
My view is that Zogby has been building up political capital in the United States for decades by calling them as well as he could. He acted almost like a sleeper agent, toiling away to position himself to have the greatest possible effect at the critical moment. On Tuesday, he cashed in all of his chips in an attempt to influence this one election. This one was the all-or-nothing battle that he had been working toward for years.
But in the end, it wasn't enough. Now he is trying to pick up the pieces. We must not let him do so. We must not forget what Zogby tried to do here.
Zogby ... as one 'Rat to another ... here's your kool-aid!
This is nothing more than spin by Zogby, and it is a feeble attempt at that.
"Zogby has lost all credibility except for democrats who want to be filled with bogus information."
There will always be a market for that!
We will remember!
Sadly enough I saw Pat Robertson's program on the day before the election and he was about to introduce Zogby.
I immediately changed the channel.
Two delusional people who seemingly deserve each other.
"But it blew up on him bigger than a Pali suicide belt."
That's a good one. You should send it to Dan Rather to explain why their projections were wrong on election night.
Thanks. Is Dan still refusing to call Ohio?
I only have time for a short post, but here's what I've seen... (Z's Prez state polls):
He understated the Prez's strength by an average of 2.9% in these states. EVERY state, he understated it.
He understated the DIFFERENCE in the strength of the Prez vs sKerry support by 2.5%.
His special sauce ended up skewing his figures by about 3% in favor of the Demodog, on average, it appears ... and I have no more time to look further now. Whether intentional or not, it was a systematic error because there was not even a hint of scatter in these underestimates of the president's strength.
Thanks! Just another reason why Zog should find another job and forget about his polling gig.
The spin I am STILL hearing from the left was that Kerry opted not to "put the country through a repeat of the 2000 election". They think he COULD HAVE won if he had gone to the courts. They are delusional. There is no way that he would have gotten the necessary votes.
At least they now agree with us that he is a p***y.
The overstated polls probably got some 'undecideds' to vote sKerry so that they could vote "for the winner" (also deferring judgment to "whoever" must be the better candidate).
The overstated polls had another effect as well though (especially when the media's Zogbyism became apparent night after night). It drove conservative voters to the polls in record numbers. People stood up and said HELL NO, WE WANT BUSH!
I like it, I like it!
I think I have the answer for all the bogus polls and exit polls. The media was setting us up for the RAT lawsuits that never happened. They were going to go with the eletion 2000 game plan that even if Bush won they were going to tarnish the win and hope that the goons in the RAT party rioted making Bush look bad again.
bump for later
We have all learned that as soon as one says "Trust Me" we know we can not. It is not different with John-boy!
Hopefully Dick Morris and some others will force an investigation of the Exit Poll Scam to electronically coup the election for Kerry.
It appears that Zog the Great set the stage for this bs the night before the election with his last so called poll.
FNC/ABCNNBCBS were part of this attempted electronical coup. They bought it or pushed it gleefully to discourage us from voting. It didn't work.
The vile odor of this can probably be traced back to the DNC and Komrade Kerry's Kamp.
They forgot the rule, that when crooks cook the books, they should always keep a LEGIT record so they know just how much it is off.
Also, the Zog and other liars forget how we save things on the internet.
Zog should ask Blather and c BS about what happens when one tries to Rather America with Free Republic watching.
