Los Angeles, California — Results for the IBD/TIPP Presidential Election Tracking Poll will be published daily, starting October 20, 2016, and running through November 7, 2016. The latest results will be released each morning by 6:00AM (ET) at Investors.com/poll. It is not yet revealed if the tracking poll will include the top four candidates for president or if it will be limited to only the candidates of the two older political parties.
The IBD/TIPP poll – a collaboration between Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) and TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence (TIPP) – has been the most accurate pollster in recent presidential elections.
In 2004 and 2008, IBD/TIPP had the smallest deviation from the certified results, and across the last three presidential races, IBD/TIPP had the lowest average divergence.
In the 2012 race, polling analyst Nate Silver, then of the New York Times’ blog FiveThirtyEight.com, ranked 23 presidential polling organizations using his own methodology and called IBD/TIPP “the most accurate” tracking poll for the year.
Daily results for the IBD/TIPP poll reflect a six-day moving average based on a national survey of approximately 850 to 1,000 randomly selected registered and likely voters. All interviews are conducted live by landline or cell phone.
To ensure a more accurate end result, proprietary data are used to accurately adjust for the race, gender, region and political party affiliation of the nation as a whole.
The IBD/TIPP poll is a collaboration between Investor’s Business Daily and TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence. Each month, the IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index is the earliest take on consumer confidence and predicts with good reliability monthly changes in sentiment in well-known polls by The Conference Board and the University of Michigan. Both the IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index and IBD/TIPP Presidential Election Tracking Poll are national surveys based on randomly selected live interviews via cell phone and landlines.
