Who believes polls get generated purely for information with no intent of promoting an agenda?
40,000 pages of background noise............
I think before I can answer that question, I need to know who pays for the poll. Polls aren't free, I wonder how much somebody would pay for a poll, which disagrees with their agenda?
Years ago I used to do work for Nielsen Media the TV rating people, got to know one of the sales people and asked him how they picked out the random people for a viewing audience. Oh he says they write in to us and volunteer to be part of the survey audience, so I ask him how that's a random audience if Nielsen already knows who they are and they asked to do it..
Polls only work with people who WANT to be polled, which indicates a pre existing bias, anyway.
Always has been, always will be.
They pay well when looking at votes and dollars needed to sway undecided.
You are not likely to see such polls. They are similar but much more in depth. Polling or information gathering centers have deliver to retain and gain business.
I have spoken of such firms. The good ones had this past election pegged accurately.
Worked on a few ballot measures in the state. Public polls by papers around the state where off by large margins. They may have gotten the outcome right. However the bigger concern was the margin. Papers in one had it to close to call but leaning towards a win.
The internal polls showed 30 point cushion. So we didn't need to spend money on ads to hold par.
Final outcome 34.3 point margin of victory.
We never released those polls and they where guarded closely
You have my attention.... care to elaborate further?
Both conservatives and liberals want free speech. Example of left is UC Berkley (sp?) which used to be the center of free speech in '60's.
