The Datanálisis election

Readers of this blog know that for the past few weeks, we (mostly me, really) have raised serious doubts about Datanálisis’ poll predictions. At the same time, we relied on Consultores 21’s projection that Capriles was ahead.

The results were a clear endorsement of Datanálisis, who predicted the outcome pretty nicely, and a serious embarassment to Consultores 21.

So in that regard, kudos to Datanálisis and their team. They can be proud, and I apologize for criticizing them.

Consultores 21 … your reputation has been irreparably shattered.
