I know they botched 2012 pretty bad but so did many other pollsters. Yet only Mason-Dixon is acting all emo about it and refusing to come outside.

Mason-Dixon is only polling FL and MN this year.

I think they are on the verge of going bankrupt.

A lot of pollsters (which are not paid by the media or by universities or which have a big client stock) may go bankrupt over the next years if they are not switching to online polling. Phone polling is getting very expensive, because nobody picks up the phone anymore.

Hasn't Mason-Dixon been ARG-tier since 2006?

No idea about 2006 or 2010, but Mason Dixon was terrible in 2008 and 2012. We're better off without them.

Most countries I think, have somewhere between 5 and 10 serious pollsters, while the US has somewhere between 200 and 300. Tongue I don't think people would miss it if some of those would merge or go bankrupt.

They put the criminal ahead in FL over a month ago. Haven't seen anything from them since then.

Who cares? MD is quite possibly the most overrated polling outfit ever.

Sorry Sam Spade. I still love ya, buddy!
