    I got a feeling an editor's head is going to roll.

    Possibly, but I was shocked. I had no idea any sanity existed among Fox News moonies.

    In the same way Libtards ignore threads that are anti-Obama?

    Another FAIL of a thread, courtesy of Shitting Bull himself.

    My recollection is that a number of Fox News personalities run "polls" where respondents are self-selected. These are of course unscientific and almost devoid of information content. This poll on the other hand was conducted scientifically and with a published methodology. Its results are probably more or less accurate. For example, it's approve/disapprove number on Obama is statistically identical to the numbers from many other polling organizations.

    Supposing hypothetically that Fox News polls did display a persistent bias in one direction, they could still be highly informative. One could say that the actual numbers were no more conservative, say, than those polls indicated. Statistical estimators are only useless when they have a large uncertainty, not when they have a large but known bias. Of course, I have no reason to believe this poll has a large bias or uncertainty.
