A couple people pointed me to this news item. I don’t have anything particular to say here, but it seemed worth noting. End of an era and all that.
P.S. A colleague commented: “They’re not going to poll one of those things where we can tell if you get it wrong. Not good.”
I replied: Gallup is not a public utility. It was my impression that those horse-race polls were a loss leader to Gallup, a way for them to get their name in the newspaper and help sell the paid poll questions that make money for them. But if the publicity is negative, I can see why they might not want to do this anymore!
