Was StPetePolls Right on Election?

The St. Pete based polling outfit released results of its surveys compared to the actual election results.

For the last year StPetePolls has been polling on local issues throughout St. Petersburg. Leading up to the Nov. 6 general election, the local polling outfit began to poll statewide for national and state races. 

StPetePolls has now released results comparing its survey results compared to the general election totals, which show that it was more accurate than most national polls. 

"St. Pete Polls had a good night tonight. Both with the accuracy of our recent poll results, and with how several of our clients performed in their races," StPetePolls said in a statement. "We used several different polling methods over the course of this election cycle, ending with the same early voter polling method that had been very accurate for us during the Republican Primary in August. 

"Every one of the races that we polled last week were accurate to the final election results within the margin of error for each poll, with several within 1% of the final candidate results."

The same cannot be said for national polls such as Gallup, Rasmussen and The Suffolk University Political Research Center who stopped polling in Florida because it thought Romney would clearly win.  

StPetePolls was within one percent on the Presidential race, U.S. District 18 and the Pinellas County Sheriff races.

I don't understand the question mark at the end of the headline. Journalism tip for the amateurs who run Patch: make the headline declarative, as in "StPetePolls Right on Election."
