SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the dust settles from the 2012 elections, one of the top soothsayers to emerge in the country was Kimball Political Consulting (KPC), who successfully polled 103 out of 107 elections throughout the country this election season.
- KPC was the first pollster to find Elizabeth Warren with a post-convention bounce in early September cutting into Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown's lead by 5 points and basically tying the race.
- KPC predicted an upset in Florida's U.S. Congressional race between Democrat Patrick Murphy and Republican Allen West; when both campaigns were claiming to be up by double digits, KPC polling showed Murphy with a slight lead.
- KPC found Governor Mitt Romney had a chance to steal an electoral vote in Maine's second congressional districts.
The Pollster, Spencer Kimball said his biggest surprise came in the results of Massachusetts' 6th Congressional District where Richard Tisea (R) was defeated by 16 year-Incumbent John Tierney (D) in light of Tisea's significant lead in the polls and Tierney's low approval numbers. KPC methodology screens for only those most likely to vote, but Kimball said "the democrat machine was able to get out the vote of all registered voters which skewed the results of the polls."
KPC either publicly or privately polled federal, state or local races in 17 States including West Virginia, Maryland, Oklahoma, Missouri, North Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Delaware, Massachusetts, California, Maine, Washington, Illinois, Georgia, Nevada, Colorado, and Wisconsin. KPC does not conduct national Presidential polls because they are not relevant to election outcomes as are state races.
KPC will continue to focus on State races in 2013 with tracking research in Virginia and New Jersey along with Municipal elections throughout the country beginning in January 2013.
