  • Is traditional polling going the way of the corner bowling alley?

    Many of us can remember when small towns and even big city neighborhoods almost always included a bowling alley a dry cleaner a drive-in movie and more recently a travel agency. Finding these establishments today is a tall order. The latest evidence regarding traditional political “horse race” polls suggests that this phenomenon might be degrading them as well. Last October, in a burst of honesty, the Gallup Company which is granddaddy of polling firms decided it had had enough. It could no longer overcome the duel barriers of widespread cell phone use and resistance to answering pollsters’ questions. Consequently, Gallup...

    The Pew Institute has done extensive research on the differences between how people respond in self-generated online polls and those that require answering questions posed by another person. This is a topic well worth pursuing; but to make sure each step of this inquiry rests on solid ground an important point from another Pew survey must be considered. In 2014 Pew released the results of a study that focused on the percentage of people who were responding to pollsters’ calls. Pew found that in 1997 36% of its attempts at securing a respondent resulted in a willing participant in their...

    I made up a term for something and it was posted at Urban Dictionary. Not the most difficult thing to do but I'm slightly proud of myself. A long time ago I noticed that on sites like Breitbart, TheDC and Gateway Pundit there would be times where every single comment agreeing with the author would have exactly 1 negative vote. It was as if someone had sat and deliberately gone through every one of the hundreds of comments with the sole intention of disagreeing with each one. So, after a awhile I made up a term for the kind of...

    Zogby online poll | July 28, 2010 | ChocChipCookie
    Every once in a while I get an email inviting me to take an online Zogby poll. These are always focused on politics, but there is one question that drives me crazy: How often do you shop at Wal-Mart? A. Every week B. A few times a month C. A couple times a year D. Never E. Other F. Not sure G. Refused So I shop at Walmart every once in a while, but this question is confusing. If I shop there every week, isn't that the same as "a few times a month"? And, "A couple of times a...

    "People were just getting together on their own," remembers Tom. "I guess you could call it grass roots." Like thousands of others, Tom downloaded phone lists so he could cold-call potential supporters in the area. Mary spent hours typing names and addresses into Obama's national database. The first paid operatives finally arrived in the area weeks later, only to find a virtually organized Obama machine already up and running. When the campaign held its first statewide training sessions in March, some 2,000 people turned up.It has gone on like this all year for Obama as his campaign deftly exploits the...

    Let's start with Wednesday night's CNN/YouTube debate. I'll have to admit. This is the most entertaining debate format of the season. While many of the questions are dumb, I like that the candidates are uneasy and having to roll with the punches. Here's a wrapup of the Republican version on Wednesday. But the biggest disappointment for me was that the guys at Red State Update didn't make the cut this time. Back in the summer, they were the hit of the Democratic Debate with a question about Al Gore. (see Joe Legge's Blog) But this time, they're questions were too...

    Senator Barack Obama scored a victory among progressive activists Wednesday, winning the Straw Poll of attendees at the Take Back America Conference in Washington. Obama received 29% of the 720 votes cast in the straw poll, narrowly beating out former North Carolina Senator John Edwards, and decisively knocking official front-runner Hillary Clinton into third place. Edwards took 26% of the vote and Clinton 17%. New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson received 9% of the vote, and 8% wrote in the name of former Vice President Al Gore, who was not listed as a candidate in the straw poll. The poll...

    On Technorati, which offers a real-time glimpse of the blogosphere, the most frequently searched term this week was "YouTube." Then comes "Ron Paul." The presence of the obscure Republican congressman from Texas on a list that includes terms such as "Sopranos," "Paris Hilton" and "iPhone" is a sign of the online buzz building around the long-shot Republican presidential hopeful -- even as mainstream political pundits have written him off.

    Emerging from the back of the stage to a vociferous round of applause from the audience, Ron Paul quickly took a seat next to the show's host, a visible look of surprise on his otherwise placid face. Leaning into him, the host quipped that he had never seen such an animated audience before and attributed the tangible excitement in the room to Ron Paul and his appearances at the Republican debates and other talk shows. With the recent surge of support for Paul's once obscure presidential candidacy, spurred in part by the tremendous amount of buzz he's garnered online (his...

    ABC News ^ | May 7, 2007 | By RICK KLEIN
    Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, who barely registers in public opinion polls of the Republican presidential field, won last Thursday night's debate. That was the unmistakable conclusion of the online poll posted by debate sponsor MSNBC, which registered Paul with higher positive ratings and lower negative numbers than any of the other nine candidates on the stage. In ABC's post-debate Internet survey showed an even clearer victory for Paul, with the congressman taking more than 9,400 of 11,000 votes as of 12:30 p.m. Monday. (Rudy Giuliani is the next ranked candidate, with barely 150 votes.) So are the polls missing a...

    British salors are tortured in Iran.....The Democrats are going to "Cut-and-Run".....Huge Tax increases are on the horizon....and Pissant is pissed that Rudy Guliani has so much support.....Now the real possibility arises: Will Sanjaya kill "American Idol"?....... The Indian-American teen says he'll win, but Simon Cowell says if that happens, he'll quit. Even Paula Abdul, usually the kindest judge, says the buzz surrounding this unlikely contender has "run amok." It started with the Web site, which encourages voters to keep 17-year-old Sanjaya Malakar on the Fox show because his performances -- marked by a weak singing voice that often veers...
  • Liberal Leftists Cheating (Voter Fraud) at the Weblog Awards

    Leftists Stealing Votes That Don't (Really) Count? In a matter of only hours, two left wing blogs - Kos and Atrios - went from the bottom of the pack of blogs and suddenly pulled ahead by a pretty fat margin in the Best Overall Blog category in the Wizbang Weblog Awards. I have a deep suspicion that (ahemm) someone rigged the poll. There is a huge possiblity that someone could have nixed the system, and after roaming at Kos and Atrios, Atrios hasn't even advertised himself in the Weblog Awards! I humbly ask that Mr. Alyward, chairman of the Election...
