There is absolutely no meaning to any polls on Ozpol.
For a start this forum does seem to attract the loony fringe element so it isn't a valid cross section of the Australian community.


Polls on HERE are absolutely worthless. The sample set is only a hundred or so of which maybe 10-15 will be involved at best.

But real polls out there in the real world run by real pollsters??? VERY VERY  important.


Living in a politically diverse community
I have seen many polls
Each one structured or written to achieve a specific result

Polls also target specific groups to achieve a known result.
IE
Labour polls in labour areas
Liberal in liberal areas

Ie;
How badly has labour done in your area?

Would you rate Labour's failure as
1) very bad
2) bad
3) not good
4) not as bad as it might have been.

Questions that are weighted to achieve a specific negative result against labour

Reported as
Labour was rated as bad in 40% of respondents and not good or bad in 60%

Polls aren't worth the paper they are printed on

You know nothing about polling. Not a thing. But at least you are consistent in knowing little about almost every topic.
