DescriptionObviously our polling on the 10th Congressional District Democratic primary in Illinois was way off, one of our worst misses ever. We apologize to our clients, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and MoveOn, for letting them down on this race.

PCCC and MoveOn have been transparent with their polling on the race and have posted all the polls we did for them over the last 3 months here. This error is on PPP, not them.

We did see the race tightening significantly over the final week. The tracking poll we did on Sunday, March 11th found Sheyman leading by 21 points, 46-25. The tracking we did on Wednesday, March 14th found Sheyman's lead down to 14 points at 44-30. The numbers that were released publicly last Thursday combined the interviews from Sunday and Wednesday, for the purposes of a larger sample size.

The final night of tracking we did on Sunday, March 18th continued to show Schneider gaining ground while Sheyman stayed in place, and that the lead was down to 11 points at 44-33. Still we never would have expected this.
