A poll of "612 adults statewide(NJ) was underwritten by WFDU-FM Radio and conducted by telephone using both landlines and cell phones from Oct. 17 through Oct. 23, 2011"
- Americans now have more ways than ever before to get their news about politics and world affairs. I?m going to read you a list of news sources. As I read the list, just say "yes" if you got newsfrom that source any time in the past week:
FOX News(64% said yes)
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart(18% said yes)
Example of misleading question:
"To the best of your knowledge, have the opposition groups protesting in Egypt been successful inbringing down the regime there?"
Do they mean Hosni Mubarak or the Army? What "regime?" Of the 110 people from New Jersey who said "Yes" to watching the Daily Show in the last week, 74 of them answered "yes" to the above question. Of the 398 people from New Jersey who said "Yes" to watching FOX News in the last week, 198 of them answered "yes" to the above question.
These sorts of polls are bullshit.
