Reddit Loonies Hijack FoxNews Poll
Reddit ^ | 02-10-10 | Stoutcat

Posted on 02/10/2010 11:23:03 AM PST by Stoutcat

From Reddit:

"Fox News Poll: 'What Do You Think Tea Party Movement Is About?' 'Fruitless mix of racism, conspiracy theories' is one of the choices. You know what to do.

Can we out-vote the fruits and nuts on Reddit?

(Excerpt) Read more at foxnews.com ...


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: foxnews; poll; reddit; teaparty
I voted, but the Reddit crowd is still ahead in the poll.

Lulz, as if there aren’t loonies at *this* site too? No site is completely immune from the disease of liberalism. I go to Reddit often and find it does have a fair share of conservatives. If you go poking around in anti-Palin/Fox threads then of course you’re going to find liberals.

Some conservatives don’t like Glenn Beck or Palin. That doesn’t mean they’re liberals.

Don't know what a “Reddit” is but FReeped the poll.

There is only one left wing response so it will be an easy poll for anti-American types to swing it.

Fox worded that poll badly.

It’s like me taking a poll that says:

Who do you think Jesus Christ was?

a. The son of God
b. The word
c. The truth
d. The light
e. The lamb of God
f. a phony con artist

and then complaining when F is selected more than the others.

Notice that 3 out of the 4 choices (not including “other”) are valid responses in favour of the Tea Party. There is only one negative choice — thus practically guaranteeing that the largest single % response would be negative. Most people would just look at the bars, and not tally the positive responses. Quite a trick, eh? Just one of the many ways these (already meaningless) polls can be skewed, to produce any “results” the publishers want.

Whoever the dingbat is who put that poll up needs a flogging.

Only a complete idiot would put a poll up that let’s the voter, vote more than once (without at least changing subnet IP addresses)

Online polls are really pointless. We know it, they know it, everyone knows it.

With racism and conspiracy answer leading the way, Foxnews will never show the results of this poll.

Just throw this “poll” into the trash bin labeled “Lies Damned Lies Statistics”.

I voted, but these are never scientific polls. FOX and others create polls as a hook to get people, regardless of how that vote, to hit their websites. It's a money making gimmick.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them.

You can vote more than once. No doubt that’s why it’s so skewed.

Way to run a poll.

I am having trouble loging in and posting comments, but I voted. A bunch of progressives and rhinos seem to have thought they were at Daily Kos. I think they are drunk. They know or are denying what will happen at the voting booth come November. Either way it is coming and they are going to be crying. The Hollywood goofs will again want to move to England or Canada. And also they are just acting tough as usual. It doesn’t matter... because it is fickle words.

Right, the real polls from Gallup, Rasmussen, and Zogby and whatever else is being polled by news channels and magazines are showing big losses for the democrat progressives coming.
