The Wall Street Journal has an article on which pollsters did best. The phone polls of Rasmussen (automated) and Mason-Dixon (human) were the best, off by slightly less than 4% on average. Next best were Zogby (human) and SurveyUSA (automated), off by slightly more than 4%. Zogby's interactive (Internet) polls were off by an average of almost 9%, although they predicted 18 of the 19 Senate winners correctly. SurveyUSA posted a detailed comparison of its polls with those of its competitors.
