Guess the Ivy League ain’t what it used to be


Newsweek just released a Princeton Survey Research Associates poll showing former NC Senator and candidate for VP, John Edwards, leading the pack in head to head match-ups for President.  Now the BS radar started buzzing and whirling so we had to take a closer look despite the overwhelming gag reflex.  Now we know that Republicans aren’t too hot right now as a whole and President Bush is fairing even worse, but John Edwards?

So, after taking a quick peek at the sample we found that it contained 37% Democrats to 26% Republicans and a whopping 33% were Independents.  It doesn’t even go into sex or race, and we all know that in polling an accurate sample, that matters.  Shame on you people.  If all you have is crap, don’t try to put it in a bowl with a cherry on top and call it chocolate ice cream.  Our guess is that it doesn’t take a group of Ivy Leaguers out there to figure out why the results are what they are.  Anyone else?

Now I have just a few more questions so we can describe the people who took part in our survey. Regardless of how you might have voted in recent elections, in politics today, do you consider yourself a Republican, Democrat, or Independent?

Total   RVs
25 Republican 26%
36 Democrat 37%
35 Independent 33%
2 No party/Not interested 2%
* Other party *
2 Don’t know 2%
100   100%
