CROP’s Radio-Canada poll and the Montreal municipal elections

I don't mean to boast but I would like to point out how close our polling results for Radio-Canada (which we made public last week) were to the results of yesterday's elections in Montreal. The table below makes that clear.

Because ... every time we are told that pollsters got an election wrong, every time there are discrepancies between the last polls before an election and the final results somewhere in the world-it takes me a whole week to defend our industry. For once, my phone is blissfully silent.
