Biased questions (english)
22 Mar 2003
This poll is biased to show statistically more votes claiming that protesting is "anti-American". There are two categories for "No" responses but only one for "Yes". Right now the total no votes add up to the exact no votes.

It's also biased... (english)
23 Mar 2003
in that it's taken by people who surf to this site, generally being people with more establishmentarian views to begin with, who may value MSNBC as an actual news source rather than a propaganda source...

It is so easy to construct a "majority" who believe anything you want them to... just write the poll in such a way and ask such an audience...

Reject poll numbers, even when they work in your favor, because they're biased. What's right is right even if the "majority" don't believe it. Use moral arguments, not majoritarian arguments.
Dumb and biased poll questions (english)

Poll:
Do you think capturing or killing Saddam will end the war?

Yes, he is the regime.

No, his military must be defeated.

Today I had the two above choices. I know, that killing Saddam will not stop the war. And, as far as his military "must be defeated," if I don't approve of this unjust war, that also can't be answered.

I seems that many polls in our war-loving media are mostly for the benefit of war advocates.
