10 competing opinion pollsters released data in the final 3 days before votes were counted in Tuesday’s Pensylvania Democratic Primary.

With 99.51% of the vote counted, Hillary Clinton has a 9.2 percentage point margin of victory. When those numbers are fed into SurveyUSA’s Pollster Report Card, the “most accurate” awards are spread evenly across a number of pollsters.

  • Suffolk University is Most Accurate by 3 of 8 scientific measures.
  • Quinnipiac University, Strategic Vision and ARG are Most Accurate by 2 of 8 scientific measures.
  • Zogby is Most Accurate by 1 of 8 scientific measures.
