Companies: University of Michigan
Address: 426 Thompson St., Ann Arbor, MI, 48106-1248,

While the accuracy of pre-election polls in the general election has been steadily improving, there have been recent problems with pre-election polls in primaries and caucuses in the United States and in sub-national elections in a number of other countries. This paper will describe recent experiences with pre-election in a comparative context and discuss the range of sources for these problems, including sampling, interviewing, and likely voter model issues.
