Worthless polls

Funny how the same poll on the same day but on different television station websites show very different results:

KGNS - NBC Pro8News

I smell… stuffed polls! It is so easy to skew the results & confuse people who read both television websites. At least KGNS acknowledges that “The opinions expressed in this poll do not necessarily represent the collective views of our community (emphasis mine), this station or its management.”

KVTV - Univision

A ver… quien fue el chapucero fregado!?!
(Let’s see… who was the f***ing cheater!?!)

    It is not the “same poll”. Each station did their own poll. The respondents were not the same . And neither one is scientific at all.

    ___talking to people at the Chamba, i find that most native born Laredenses in the working class are in favor of limiting access to our country and our country’s benefits ( las food stamps y medicaid to name a few) and that they feel that there would be more jobs if that Law were to be in effect ( so they say Yay to that law)

    I think probably one person voted 100 times on the KGNS poll.

    What is your e-mail address I want to send you a copy of a federal mandate form to see if racial profiling is being done by the states . The form is a Texas form to be filed by the officer making citizen contact.

    One poll is primarily watched by citizens and “legal immigrants” and the other station is primarily watched by “illegal immigrants”. Sometimes the obvious is not so obvious if you are looking for the answer you want and not necessarily the truth.

    It’s just surprising that the Pro 8 News poll would turn out like that since Laredo’s population is primarily Mexican-American. People keep missing the point of this law. I’m not necessarily for illegal immigration, but I’m definitely against racial profiling.

  7. Big O says:

    I’m pro-immigration as well, but my flavor of choice is “legal immigration”.
