How the current average is determined:      

                                                       

In order for a poll to be included in the current average, the following conditions must be met:

 

  • When multiple respondent types are available, they will be used in the following order of preference.

Likely voters > Registered voters > Adults

 

  • All polls with a release/embargo time of 8PM ET or earlier will be added to the average by 11:59PM ET the same day.

 

  • A poll will be removed from the current average when its last day of polling is more than two weeks old.

For example, a poll that was conducted 7/1-7/4 (Mon) would be removed from the average on 7/19 (Tues)

         

  • The number of polls in the average must always be no less than four. This overrides the removal of polls as stated above.      

                                                           

  • If a poll is due to be dropped but must remain due to above minimum poll rule, it will be replaced by the next poll.                 

                                                 

  • No more than one occurrence of the same pollster will occur in the current average.

 

  • The poll must be included in the list of pollsters referenced below. We reserve the right to add/remove pollsters from this list, however, there will be a 30-day waiting period from the day we post a dated notification here until those polls are added/removed from any current average.

 

  • Effective 9/10/2016 - Gravis polling data will no longer be used in our averages.
