Quinnipiac Polling

Thought this subject would work pretty well with voting in only six days,

How much attention do you pay to the polls? I'm just not sure the people they pole all fit into a certain category that the pollers want!!

Many news sites use the Quinnipiac University Pole so not sure how this works I did some research on Wiki.  Of the bloggers who didn't know (including me) that Quinnipiac was a University - here's  the lowdown.

It's larger than other university polling centers, in fact they expanded in 2007 to house 160 cubicles. They poll nationally and employ 10 permanent full-time staff.

It started as a marketing class in 1988 and became formal in 1994. They cover swing states (we've heard a lot about that lately). The University funds the operation and the university has gained new students due to the polling.

I really appreciated finding out that they do independent surveys of residents all over the United States.

The latest figures show that the Quinnipiac Pole was the most accurate in 2010 the a mean error of 2.0 percent.

OF COURSE, I would never ask who you are voting for!!!!! BUT PLEASE VOTE- IT IS AN HONOR TO DO SO.

You could ask me who I would vote, but I am not American ! Usually over here in Belgium we talk about for whom we would vote, that's no secret ! Anyway I would certainly not vote for this fool of Trump !

I am thankful that I don't have to vote and risk getting "mr... T.." on the headchair.... he scares me all the way across the ocean and I feel worried for all people who are depending on the government in the US

Have a wonderful ABC-day / - week

Certainly a new name for me and as a Canadian, I echo Melody's comment about Mr. T scaring us on this side of the border! Fingers crossed...

My daughter came down from college last weekend, so that she could go vote. It is her first presidential election, so she did a lot of research and had a lot of questions. I really don't like either of the two major presidential candidates, but I'm not sure the two minor ones have a winning chance. May God have mercy on us during this most difficult presidential election. Peace!

Never ask the Husband who he's voting for. He sternly tells the questioner that his vote is a private one and it's nobody's business who he votes for. I agree with him, but I like to think that I'm a bit less stern when I say "Thank you, but no!" lol
