How often does a pollster get it right?
So, as a rough rule of thumb, you can expect polls to be right about four out of five times … of course, that also means they’ll miss about one out of five times. Looking at hits and misses, though, isn’t really our preferred way to judge polling accuracy. Sure, Biden held on to win Wisconsin, for example, so the polls were technically “right.”
