Pollsters Admit ‘Major Errors’ In 2020, ‘Egregiously’ Undercounted GOP Support

DM

A group of Democratic polling companies acknowledged “major errors” in their efforts to track voters during the 2020 election Tuesday. Five of the largest polling companies for the Democratic Party – ALG Research, Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group, GBAO Strategies, Global Strategy Group, and Normington Petts – issued a joint statement admitting that each one overestimated Democratic performance on election day last year. “2020 was an ‘Oh, s***’ moment for all of us,” one pollster involved in crafting the statement told Politico. “And I think that we all kinda quickly came to the point that we need to set our egos aside. We need to get this right.” The results of the 2020 election sparked infighting among Congressional Democrats as moderates pressured House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to rein in progressives such as Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Moderate Democrats slammed more radical party members, claiming that radical Democratic policy proposals throughout the 2020 election cost the party close races.
