My Critics Lack knowledge On Polling - Ben Ephson

Pollster Ben Ephson has described his critics as people who are ignorant on the nitty-gritties of polling. Mr Ephson who also host the Ephson's File on Radio XYZ 93.1 FM predicted a one-touch victory for president Mahama with votes within the range of 50.2 to 54.2 percent. President Mahama was declared the winner of the election with 50.70 percent of valid votes cast. Mr Ephson told XYZ News, after four consecutive successful predictions it is clear that his methods are tried and tested. �For those who say I concoct figures I might as well stop polling and stake lotto every week, that will be less stressful and more rewarding financially,� he said. The NPP boycotted Sunday�s results declaration by the EC Chairman, Dr. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan. Mr Ephson is also urging the party, especially it�s elected MPs, to work with the majority to enhance Ghana�s democracy.
