As Dale points out, Polaris is not exactly at 90.00 degrees.

For visual and crude navigational purposes, Polaris proximity to the NCP (<0.75 degrees) is good enough

and if any of us are around in 12000 years, we could use Vega as the "North Star" although it will not be as close as Polaris is today.
