This page presents the CNN "poll of polls" - that is, an average of selected national public polling data to get a sense of the broader picture. While we are mindful that the polls we average are based on different samples and turnout models, the picture yielded by a combination of the polls is less volatile than that of an individual poll, due to the sheer number of interviews that the combination provides. The polls we have included in the "poll of polls" are screened carefully to ensure that they adhere to methodologies generally accepted among polling professionals.
