OK, people have done weird stuff with polls before, and I just PM Dave.  Although Mike shouldn't have done this, a public thread was unnecessary.

No, it wasn't. Mr. Naso broke a sacred trust.

I think he entered them wrong though, because most of them are listed as too old to actually affect the average.

I heard Sean Hannity mention "New Zogby Polls" last night...and I couldn't find a thing about them...so I went to Zogby.com and found new ones...and posted a few. After realizing one was old...I edited the date of that one and didn't enter anymore.

Why...do we not enter Zogby polls or something?

We don't enter their internet polling bullcrap.

Just as we don't enter Gael L'Hermine Polling Corporation.

From my first post on the board, September 24, 2004:

Quote

That said, I too have noticed a problem with Zogby polls, polls at the same time, in the same state, tend to add more points to Bush.  This is true when compared with other media conducted polls, not candidate polls.  I tend to add 2-3 points to Bush in Zogby's results.

One problem is that they use registered voters and not likely voters; that alone could account for the problem.  I don't think it's bias based Zogby being of Arab extraction.  One recent Gallop Poll showed Bush with 13 point lead, while all others showed a much smaller lead.

I keep on saying,
It's Zogby!

Because after nearly four years, some people still don't get it.  Tongue
