New Political Poll Shows Just How
Unreliable Polling Can Be

Daily Wire, by Frank Camp

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/22/2017 5:54:04 AM

A new survey from NBC News/Wall Street Journal is the perfect example of the utter worthlessness of public polling as it relates to the implementation of government policy. In the poll, which covers numerous political topics, one question stands out: “Would you favor or oppose a single-payer health care system in which all Americans would get their health insurance from one government plan that is financed by Taxes?” To this question, 47% said they “favored” such a system, 46% said they “opposed,” and 7% said they were “not sure.” However, when pollsters added a bit of specificity to the question, the

And what kind of policies would the Royal Politicians and families wind up with? Somehow, I don´t think we would see them waiting in lines with we peasants.

The poll should ask, "Would you prefer a health care system which requires you to call a government office to get permission to visit a doctor?"

That´s how Canada´s system works. Try calling ANY federal government office and see how well that goes.

Actually the favoring dropped 23% and opposing rose 19.5%.


Anyone writing about polling should know the difference between percentages and percentage points.

The question should be asked after making them aware that these "Taxes" would come out of their pockets and will also pay for someone else´s health care! Then see the support.

Great job showing the worthlessness of THIS poll, but most polling is worthless on just about anything. Unless they screen for people who actually understand BOTH sides of any given topic. People generally have OPINIONS on things they do not fully understand, that would change their minds if they were INFORMED of both the pro and con of just about any divisive issue, and also of long range consequences. But we the people are also ill informed of these finer points because Media tries to direct our paths rather than light the way.

In a perfect world, no reputable publication would feature poll results without presenting the exact wording- placed in the beginning of the first paragraph.

Historically, polling that we´re accustomed to is nothing but a crutch for the vast majority of the members of today´s lazy media. It´s requires almost as much ambition as you will find in most local TV weatherpersons.

Doug Jones believes he became the first Democrat Alabama will send to the U.S. Senate in more than a 30 years because he’s a “center-of-the-road political figure” who seeks “common ground” — a goal he discussed Wednesday with President Donald Trump.“It was a very gracious call,” Jones told reporters. “He congratulated me on the race that we had run. He congratulated me and my staff. … And we talked about finding that common ground. And he invited me up to the White House as soon as I get up there.”Jones rocked the political landscape Tuesday with his surprise defeat of

Appearing on NBC’s Today Wednesday morning to react to Democrat Doug Jones winning the Alabama special election for Senate, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd spun that the defeat of scandal-plagued Republican Roy Moore was not just a “one-off” and even bizarrely claimed that Democratic losses earlier in the year were a sign of building political momentum on the left. Co-host Savannah Guthrie began the discussion by wondering: “Chuck, a Democrat wins the Senate in Alabama, you haven’t said that in two decades. How did he do it?” In his rambling reply, Todd argued: He did it on the backs of

Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused

Trump said that the U.S. ´must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people´ into the country. The Republican president pointed to his controversial travel ban as an example of the kind of policy that needs to be put in place.

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to
