More than just a survey, this innovative tool harnesses predictive insights derived from the opinions of Arizona voters, making it an invaluable resource as we approach the next elections.
Decoding the Formula: A Precise Measure of Electability
At the heart of the Arizona Power Rankings is a meticulous formula designed to distill survey responses into predictive insights. By assigning points based on alignment with voter preferences, net favorability, and name ID, the scores presented on the dashboard encapsulate a person's electability power. This isn't just about popularity; it's a comprehensive analysis of how well a potential candidate resonates with the electorate.
To better understand the specifics of how these scores are calculated, we’ve written a blog that lays out the process – check it out here.
