Use of Partisan Affiliated Polls in the RCP Poll Averages

Use of Partisan Affiliated Polls in the RCP Poll Averages

RCP Staff - October 7, 2008

At the national level, RealClearPolitics has always used Democracy Corps (D) surveys in the RCP Poll Averages except for the final weeks before the general election in November when only non-partisan affiliated polls are used in the RCP Poll Averages.

At the state level, RealClearPolitics uses polling from Strategic Vision (R) and PPP (D) in the RCP Poll Averages along with other pollsters in selected states, except for the final weeks before the general election in November when only non-partisan affiliated polls are used in the RCP Poll Averages.

Starting October 11, and through the final weeks of Election 2008, RealClearPolitics will only be adding non-partisan affiliated polls to the RCP Poll Averages. Polls from PPP (D), Strategic Vision (R), along with any other partisan affiliated polls or pollsters that have been added before October 11 will remain in the RCP Averages until they are rolled out.
