Poll Accuracy in Turkish Elections

I criticized Turkish election polls a lot in the past for multiple reasons, so it is not a big surprise that my first blog post is about the performance of pollsters. (On a side note, Turkey is a country, where all major news outlets shared an election poll of samplesize ~100 based only on one village in Turkey because that village had historicaly voted close to the national vote result…) Election polls in Turkey tend to be very opaque since they generally are ordered by private parties who then share only the final results of the polls without any details on the methodolgies.
