Jo, it’s close to being accurate as far as the respondents in the categories of people who visited this site, noted the survey, and chose to express an opinion. This was an informal survey and didn’t even pretend to go through all of the statistical analysis of demographics or correlation to census figures.
When you are asked to participate in a serious poll, you will be expected to answer all of the questions regarding marital status, ethnicity, gender, age, education, employment, income, own/rent, etcetera. When the quota of a category is filled (e.g. – single, white, female, 20-25, college graduate, self-employed, $150-$175K /yr, rent…) it is an accurate reflection of the percentage of those meeting that description in the district or population polled based upon the latest census. A small but proportionate number of respondents in the hundreds can represent the opinions of millions after allowing for an error factor, usually within +/- 3%. The error factor can occur because of a flawed poll or because people sometimes say one thing and vote differently.
Just because you disagree with the results does not invalidate them. Only time will tell.

The self-professed “lapsed Catholic” should consider those obstacles a blessing in disguise, given […]
“Private Manning is a traitor and should not have been turned into a martyr. Private Manning’s actions compromised our national security, endangered American personnel downrange by leaking 750,000 documents to WikiLeaks.” — Mike Pence
Pres. Obama has, as part of his final pardons, commuted the sentence of convicted traitor and data-leaker Chelsea Manning from 35 years to 5 more months in prison. Was this mercy a good move, or does it legitimize treason and weaken our national security? Vote now in our CBC reader poll!
“I described Obama as an incredible shrinking man, it’s like watching air come out of a balloon. Between now and Easter, his legacy will shrink until it’s about the size of a golf ball.” — Newt Gingrich
