Axios morning email thingie:
“The political polling profession is done,” leading Republican pollster Frank Luntz told me just after 11 p.m. “It is devastating for my industry.”
I think this cycle (as compared to 2016), MPS did a pretty good job of NOT paying attention to the polls. Of course there was some seepage (how could there not be?) but we didn’t try to do any predictive or analysis based on polling. Instead, we paid more attention to political advertising, and I think that was instructive.
All that said, political polling is another norm that is now dead. They’ve colossally failed too many times in a row. It’s magical thinking at this point to believe in them.
