When Trump loses, will you come back and acknowledge that scientifically conducted polls use reliable methodology, while Facebook polls have no statistical relevance?


For someone who should know enough about how science is applied to poles in order to argue about it, maybe you should at least learn the difference between a method and methodology... Or were you just trying to sound more intelligent by using a longer word?


A polling METHOD would be the specific step-by-step process involved in collecting and evaluating the poll data. Actually, a given Poll will utilize many METHODS (a random sampling method, a delivery method, etc.)

A polling METHODOLOGY would be the over-arching scientific basis for that particular step-by-step process, including its goals and objectives.

Let's see ... a Trump supporter posts a poll ... and his friends (Trump supporters) see it ... and link it to their friends (Trump supporters) and so on and so on and so on ...

It's actually amazing that Clinton received any votes in this scenario at all.

A word of advice for anyone that doesn't want crushing disappointment on November 8th: look at the facts, not what your beliefs tell you.

If she wins this election I will be totally convinced that America has been hijacked by the Clinton Cabal and we are all friggin' doomed!


Because of a non-scientific poll conducted on facebook?

That makes no sense.


Non-scientific poll? Is that like the MSM polls that have consistently been proven to be oversampling democrats so the polls fit their narrative?


You might want to ask yourself why, in randomly selected populations, fewer people are identifying as Republican than Democrat.

I admire your dedication to the truth, but you realize you are speaking the equivalent of Greek to most of these folks?

They WANT to BELIEVE.

That's funny, because I have lived in Austin for 17 years, and everyone I know here is specifically voting against Trump. That includes my life-long Republican Dad. He's holding his nose and voting for Hillary because he cannot stand the idea of Trump as our President.

Jesus. Johnson seems to be outperforming Clinton on that totes unscientific poll that i think is incredibly compelling, anyway.

I would think that as 'awful' as Clinton supporters find Trump, they would be super-enthusiastic about voting for Clinton over Trump.

Very interesting.

But, we are getting stuck with Hilary. It's has already been decided.

Another non scientific poll conducted on facebook on the 18th of october asking female voters for their voting preference.
Over 1 million votes and the same story as the OP. 90% Trump, 10% Clinton


NBC News is reporting that Clinton has a 20 point lead over Trump with likely women voters. I'd like to do my own poll of likely women voters. So, to all my female friends on Facebook who are likely to vote, please reply with either Clinton or Trump to indicate who you plan to vote for. Please, no comments or debate, just the name.

That's what, 0.01% of Austin's 930K+ citizens?

"Serious" research?

Are you familiar with basic geometric progression?

There are numerous reasons this doesn't mean anything. People even are defending how 'scientific' facebook is rofl.

Normally when something is polled, it's announced also.

You could easily see the same results if someone cared enough to make a 'clinton' poll and only send the link to their friends.

The people that would see it first, would be your friends, what are the odds he's 90/10 and not 50/50?

Ontop of this, most people that forward and share the link would have similar circumstances.

Then it would be subjugated to the communities it resides in. Is anyone going to argue ATS holds more liberal bias? If not, then this link is even more so furthering it's bias decent. How you cannot connect who shares the link with the results blows my mind.

The fact you have to be 'linked' by a person that's 'voted' should be the biggest clue it's ludicrous to compare to anything and a fraudulent representation. And that's literally just to start with the first thing wrong with it...
