Hey, pollsters, here's a suggestion
Next time you get someone to answer your phone survey ask these two establishing questions and report the answers.

1. Is your television on?
2. Is it tuned to Fox or Newsmax?

Then reweight the poll.

Funny, I've never received a phone call to answer any polls, political or otherwise, and even when I've tried earning points or money on polls, the opinions of a 40+ y.o. white male are never wanted.

Between that and going looking at the details of most polls (exactly what questions are asked, how many people are asked, and the demographics), vast majority of polls are just looking to prove whatever point they want to make, not actually gauge anything. 

Reweigh that.

So DU-member Aviation Pro wants pollsters to skew their numbers by excluding strong conservatives? The pollsters' gaming their polls by over-sampling Dems isn't producing the numbers DU-member Aviation Pro wants? :rotf:
If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

Re-weight the poll if viewers of Fox or Newsmax are involved? How fascist and totalitarian of you. :whatever:

Edit: the correct link

FNC is magical TV. With only 4M viewers they got 74M people to vote for Trump in 2020.
