And? The wiki actually credits them for the accuracy of their polls. Not something you'd expect from a hack firm. Their methodology is still SOP.

Except they have no methodology on how they actually take polls.

Look, the snark really doesn't help your case. The fact is that you have unrealistic expectations of what should be reported in a poll's methodology. You can look at any random Gallup poll and see that nowhere do they breakdown what time of the day that they call people. Unless you want to call Gallup a hack firm too, you should admit that your objections here are silly.

Gallup doesn't claim to be an arm of the Democrat party. Would you honestly take information from a pollster that claimed ties to the Republican party?

So if a Republican backed survey group found that 99% of Democrats wanted to ban guns, you wouldn't question the veracity of the poll?

Of course I'd challenge the veracity, because it isn't in line with other polls on the subject. If you can demonstrate inaccuracy of the polling company, then you can make claims of bias. However, PPP has been shown very accurate in its polling relative to even big names.

huh. I didn't realize ABC/Washington Post was that good and that Quinnipiac was that bad.

 

I know which ones I am listening to from now on.

 

 

Although, it does confirm some of my negative opinions about certain pollsters. Like, never listen to Rasmussen, YouGov, IBD, any pollster with "interactive" in its name, and the worst pollster of all time, Zogby.

 

Also, Strategic Vision, Reseach 2000, and American Research Group are, to differing degrees, disgraced.

Racism will always be around, because it can come in any direction, from any direction. This is something that I've found a lot of people don't understand.

 

For instance: I went to Target to buy my mom a birthday present on Friday. I had been to this particular Target many times in the past four years, but only now did realize something. Not once in all that time did I see a single employee in this store, from the cashiers to the supervisors to the janitors to the security guards, who wasn't black. What told me something was wrong was the cashier who checked me out. She was obese to the point of imminent death and acted like she would rather just go ahead and die than swipe my one item past the scanner. She was not qualified for something as simple as a retail job, but they gave it to her, and I doubt that nobody more qualified than her applied.

 

Was I in a black neighborhood? Actually, no. It used to be about 90% black back around 1990, but the store is on the border of two census tracts that averaged a 57% white population in 2010. 

 

If the store had only hired white people, it would have been sued out of existence. Why is the reverse okay, especially now that every ethnic group in America is struggling to find work?

This land was conquered by a nation who claimed supremacy to the previous inhabitants. The previous inhabitants are still here, like in other areas which have been conquered by a better armed force.
