they were pretty solid in the 1900s. idk what happened to them but they have been much less accurate since then. in fact i thought i heard they stopped doing horse race polling because they were so bad at it, and now they only do consumer surveys and shit that no one can prove objectively wrong. thats just the reputation they have now, i don't have any really strong opinions about their methodology because i'm not sure how they do things now

Looks like they've been warring with nate silver for over a decade. Apparently Zogby was critical of his predictions of the Academy Awards lol.
