PBS wants to know what you think about Sarah Palin

PBS has a short video on Sarah Palin on their website. Also included is a poll that asks: Is Sarah Palin qualified to be VP?

I logged on a few minutes ago and 35% percent had voted YES, 65% NO.

Let's turn this around..... You don't have to give your name or email address in order to vote. It's very simple.

I'll save you some time. Is Palin qualified to be Vice-President of the PTA? Yes. VP of the United States of America? Not so much. Next quiz please.

Online polls are the easiest to manipulate. This one has no controls. You can vote more than once. And if you think about it, who primarily listens to PBS?

Yeah, we Republicans are always messing with the polls. We actually force Dems to call our houses during dinner and ask us who we want in the Oval Office. It's done with smoke and mirrors.

Dave W:

We republicans mess with the polls so bad that we comprise about 20% of the sample on a regular basis. Thats some badass rigging.

Isn't it funny how the left freaked out about how the exit polls were wrong in '04 so that means Bush rigged the election? Most polls skew at least a little bit to the left, if not alot a bit to the left. The fact that McCain was leading any polls was nearly unprecedented. I don't think Bush lead any polls leading up to his two elections, yet he still won both times. In the end, polls are irrelevant.

Sarah Palin is more experienced than Obama no matter what way you slice it. It's laughable that they are still trying to take this angle. The bigger a margin that think Palin isn't qualified, the next logical step is to assume a larger margin think obama isn't qualified. Obviously not the case. All it shows is how big of hacks those on the left are. There is no way that someone can possibly argue that Obama has more experience than Palin. No way, no how.

Following the example of Obama's Chicago political technique, I just voted, my sainted Irish Mother (may the lord have mercy on her soul) voted, and Katy (an important member of my family, fur and all) voted. My sainted Father is considering it!!!

It's called push polling. Rove made it famous and McCain endorses it.

jdoe - "How pathetic, trying to rig a poll. The only way republicans can win is to resort to smoke and mirrors."

And rigging this type of poll does what exactly when the curtain on a voting booth gets pulled closed?

That aside this type of BS isn't exclusively a rep trick. Ther were plenty if libratarians distorting the Ron Paul polls.

Just in the last few hours an online pool asked (paraphrased) "How did you like the Fox Palin interview,"

Within a span of 5 minutes while the poll was open they were "spammed" with 25,000 votes rating it negative.

jdoe - it's an online poll with no controls. End of subject.

Or we can look at it this way: It deserves to be manipulated. You know, as in "they asked for it", like Palin asked for it when her e-mail was compromised.
