Poll about polls

Pollsters didn't feel very good Wednesday.
What did they miss?
They claim they were within the margin of error.
But most were on the wrong side of the error - over estimating Clinton's strength.
The most important concentration of polling errors was regional: Polls understated Trump’s margin by 4 points or more in a group of Midwestern states that he was expected to mostly lose but mostly won: Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Back to the drawing board.
