2014 Election Polling Accuracy

Based on preliminary returns from the 2014 General Election, the Maine People’s Resource Center was once again the most accurate pollster in Maine.

MPRC’s average results for each candidate or referendum position were closest to the actual vote percentages in four of five statewide and congressional races on Election Day. The exception was the U.S. Senate race, where the Portland Press Herald/University of New Hampshire poll had the most accurate results.
