    Media Malpractice Zogby Poll Results

    Zogby Poll


    512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points

    97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

    Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions

    57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)- MY FAVORITE

    71.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

    82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

    88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

    56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

    And yet.....

    Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes

    Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

    And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her "house," even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

    Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

    Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we "gave" one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)



    This dvd was put together pretty well, I suggest people get a copy, might be out on youtube by now, shows what most of the intelligent people here already know, how in the tank the media was.

    Breitbart.tv » ‘Media Malpractice’: Documentary Reveals How Little Obama Voters Knew About Issues


    shows some clips

    another interesting piece
    Pollster John Zogby has rejected a conservative commentator’s offer to sponsor a poll to test the knowledge of people who voted for John McCain.

    The commentator was proposing to mirror a poll of Obama voters that caused a political uproar when it suggested that Obama supporters didn’t know what they were voting for.

    John Ziegler, a Burbank-based documentary filmmaker, had commissioned the poll of 512 Obama voters. The results delighted the right and inflamed the left, drawing widespread coverage on the Web, cable news and radio.

    Zogby International said in its summary of the results: “Just 2 percent of voters who supported Barack Obama on Election Day obtained perfect or near-perfect scores on a post-election test which gauged their knowledge of statements and scandals associated with the presidential tickets during the campaign, a new Zogby International telephone poll shows.”

    Push polling is just spreading propaganda and lies. It is done by the filthy christian fascist neo cons. Anyone that calls this "pole" just a standard political pole is a liar.

    and its not push polling you tard, it was a legitimate poll not done on the web.

    However, you can dismiss it just because the outcome doesn't benefit your leftist ways

    It's been posted a lot of times on different message boards as well. Extremely outdated in internet years. Irrelevant even a year ago.

    Look at what happened as a result of pushpolling and other smear tactics such as this one. Obama won an electoral landslide and did very well in the popular vote.

    Rs will never learn.

    from zogby

    We stand by the results our survey work on behalf of John Ziegler, as we stand by all of our work. We reject the notion that this was a push poll because it very simply wasn't. It was a legitimate effort to test the knowledge of voters who cast ballots for Barack Obama in the Nov. 4 election. Push polls are a malicious effort to sway public opinion one way or the other, while message and knowledge testing is quite another effort of public opinion research that is legitimate inquiry and has value in the public square. In this case, the respondents were given a full range of responses and were not pressured or influenced to respond in one way or another. This poll was not designed to hurt anyone, which is obvious as it was conducted after the election. The client is free to draw his own conclusions about the research, as are bloggers and other members of society. But Zogby International is a neutral party in this matter. We were hired to test public opinion on a particular subject and with no ax to grind, that's exactly what we did. We don't have to agree or disagree with the questions, we simply ask them and provide the client with a fair and accurate set of data reflecting public opinion." - John Zogby



    Zogby was willing to do the poll on the right but backed down due to pressure from the left...

    and the results were released after the election so there was nothing to sway

    my god

    WHO ARE ALL THESE NEW PEOPLE!

    I leave for 6 weeks and the left cooks come from the woods.

    GUNNY WHAT ARE YOU DOING

    You are a punks punk. It is clearly a push pole. Do you even know what that means?

    yes, I know what push polling is you brain dead zombie.

    However,

    a simple question such as

    "Which political party controlls congress"

    Isn't push polling! No one is being swayed or influenced or the question isn't fucking misleading is it?

    Keep living in your fantasy world

    Thanks for the post, it is obvious, liberals rarely state facts, they vote with emotion, pay little attention to what's happening in the real world and seem to care only about social issues, such as gay marriage and abortion.
