According to the latest nationwide study by FiveThirtyEight.com, Civitas and other North Carolina pollsters receive high marks for accuracy — all received either an A or a B+.
We typically use one of two pollsters to conduct Civitas Polls: either National Research Inc. or SurveyUSA. National Research Inc. usually does our monthly polling and we rely on SurveyUSA for flash polls.
We know both to be extremely accurate but the affirmation from the highly regarded FiveThirtyEight study is welcome.
National Research received a B+ for accuracy while Survey USA received an A. Both excellent marks!
Civitas conducts the only regular live-caller voting in North Carolina, and we are the only organization offering independent, nonpartisan data on current opinion. In the decade we’ve been conducting them, our polls have provided vital insights on what North Carolina voters truly think of the leaders and issues facing the state and nation.
