Note: Fake Poll.

As the prior post should suggest, but some people apparently didn't catch, this post with Gallup numbers is a joke (much like Gallup itself). The thing about Gallup is that they always oversample Republicans in their surveys, thus inflating support for Bush. This tongue in cheek post was merely meant to go to an extreme to illustrate the problem with Gallup polling. It was not meant to imply that I thought Kerry was losing or that you should not vote for him. Please vote for Kerry. Please, please, please.

New Gallup Poll out


Results are based on telephone interviews with 1,538 national adults, aged 18 and older, conducted Oct. 24-25, 2004. For results based on the total sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±3 percentage points. Sampling size 53 % Republican, 18 % Democrat, 14% independent.

Nationwide:

LV: Bush 59 Kerry 38

RV: Bush 57 Kerry 41




Wow, that is quite disturbing. Clearly Kerry has no chance of winning. Why even vote?

Note: This is a joke, this poll is fake. Kerry is winning.

What is the source for the ridiculous result quoted above?

According to CNN the Gallup LV result is Bush 51, Kerry 46. Link: www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/10/25/national.poll/index.html

When we can't trust that votes are counted legitimately, when we can't trust that the media reports the truth about GW, why should we believe the polls? You ask: Why even bother to vote? Dis you ever think that's what they WANT you to think? GET TO THE POLLS!

Hee, satire. It's too bad some people didn't get it, but then with the skewing the polls are doing now I almost understand.
