Introduction and event description

The more recent track record for pollsters on predicting election outcomes has not been that great.

The NDP's success in the 2011 election was not something that was predicted well in advance. And the predicted demise of Premier Redford in Alberta and Premier Clark in BC never actually materialized.

So what accounts for this inability to get it right? Why are so many pollsters missing the mark when it comes to predicting recent election outcomes? And what, if anything, can be done to reverse this growing trend?
