What a load of crapEdit

Yeah, I don't care who you are or what your subject matter expertise is, you're a liar if you say this poll has a .7% error rate. No one asked me. No one I talk to on a regular basis has been asked. The math doesn't work. This is wishful thinking.

More or less, most of the population does not matter and things are decided by the choices of very small groups in key areas, with relatively slim margins which can be polled and subjected to statistical analysis. Not so hard to understand is it? 68.210.66.232 06:28, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
I just don't like a poll that range from 1000-5000 people represent the whole county. --66.229.17.181 08:50, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Out of curiousity 66.229.17.181, when was the last time you took a course on statistics? I don't know how it is that the people used in this poll were sampled(phone, mail, voter registery, etc), but if they were sampled properly then there's no reason to automagically suspect the results just because only a thousand people get polled. gb2mathclass —Preceding unsigned comment added by ValeofAldur (talkcontribs) 17:23, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
