Lies, damn lies, and political polls

According to an analysis conducted by The Washington Post, the average of the polls compiled by RealClearPolitics undershot Republicans in nearly every Senate race. Democrats did slightly better than expected in Michigan, Minnesota, Montana and New Hampshire.

Republicans who outperformed what the polls predicted did so by an average of six points, according to The Post’s analysis.
