National Journal: Steven Shepard: Gallup Blew Its Presidential Polls, but Why?

Gallup Blew Its Presidential Polls, but Why? -

A little over a month ago after Mitt Romney won the first Presidential debate, the Gallup poll released a poll. That had Mitt Romney with a six point lead, even though most of the other polls had the election as a dead heat. A few points either way, right after Gallup released that poll Democratic strategist Bob Beckel said if the Gallup poll is correct. Then this election is over and Mitt Romney will win the election, thats how much serious Democrats and Republicans have trusted Gallup over the years and relied on it. I wonder if that level of trust for Gallup on both sides will remain in the future.
