I’m back – and, it looks like online protest does work, sometimes. Nice.
Anyway, I’m not saying that Forum Research is a bucket shop. I’m not saying that. I will, however, draw your attention to this and this and, of course, this. Never mind the fact that the pollsters, who use a discredited methodology (IVR, or robo-polling), actually show the federal Libs behind the leaderless NDP.
As my friends John Wright and Darrell Bricker have written, media organizations are getting sloppier in their reporting of these public opinion surveys. And political organizations should therefore remember that many of these polls are worth what you pay for them.
