Eric Boehlert, senior fellow at Media Matters for America, and Tina Dupuy, editor-in-chief of TheContributor.com, join “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer to conduct a postmortem of the election 2012 polls.
“They actually fell into the trap of believing wrong data,” Spitzer says of the Romney campaign. “How does that happen?” he asks.
“Fox News,” Boehlert answers.
Boehlert, Dupuy and Spitzer also analyze how polls are conducted in general. “They’re going to have to change their methodology,” Dupuy says, suggesting they not rely on phone calls alone. “More and more people are on the Internet than ever before, more and more people are accessible to pollsters. They should have better data, not worse.”
