Ipsos Refutes Claim of “Hidden” Poll Data

“Just Released” Ipsos Poll Had Actually Been Published Two Months Earlier

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

Washington, DC – On November 18, Breitbart published a piece claiming that Ipsos had hidden a poll showing support for Donald Trump’s immigration platform until after the election. To set the record straight, Ipsos refers readers to an article published on the Ipsos website on September 6 with the headline, “Energizing the Base: Trump’s Immigration Policy and Its Effect.” This article in fact publicly released the poll data in question.

Breitbart referred to Ipsos as “a top ranked polling firm” in both the November 18 article and in an August 31 article published on its site. Ipsos acknowledges and appreciates the commendation and reiterates its position of political neutrality and objectivity.
