Emerson College Polling Methodology
Emerson Polling has received recognition for accurately assessing voting intentions throughout the 2016 Presidential Election - including top rankings by Bloomberg News and Nate Silver’s’ FiveThirtyEight - ?using a landline-only sample design. In an ongoing effort to improve upon our work, in 2017 we experimented with the use of online panels. Our analysis found that an equal combination of landline and online participants created a representative artificial sample. After completing this study, we created a new sample design and developed the Emerson College Poll.
The Emerson Poll methodology pairs an automated system that collects data over landline phones with an online panel of participants. The modes of data analyses are non-probability and deductive (from "general" to "specific") in nature, so instead of using classical statistics to quantify the ‘uncertainty’ or range of scores a poll represents, we use Bayesian Statistical methods, that produce the mathematical likelihood of an event of interest, and that are inductive in nature (from "specific" to "general"), for data analyses in best estimating the true population mean proportion. Due to their inductive nature and probability oriented approach, Bayesian methods are often called "Evidence-Based" Statistics (Satake, 2014, 2016, and 2017).
Since implementing this new innovative methodology in 2018, the Emerson Poll was the first to put Connor Lamb (D) ahead of his rival, and the closest poll to predict?the actual margin of his victory in the PA-18 Special Election for Congress. Our poll?in the AZ-8 Special Election for Congress had Debbie Lesko (R) within a point of her final margin of victory. Most recently, in both the CA Governor and US Senate primaries, and the Ohio-12 Special election, the Emerson Poll results were within a point of the actual results. We eagerly look forward to continue testing the validity and reliability of Emerson Polling in this current election cycle.
