Pollster’s Mean Questions Make Big Tough Conservatives Weep

by Rich Abdill

HypocrisybabyPublic Policy Polling has separated itself from the other polling outfits through one simple trick: Its polls include weird questions. It’s how we found out, for example, that God had a 52-percent approval rating last year, and that only 19 percent of GOP voters polled believed Obama was going to heaven.

They are not questions of any dire importance, which is why it’s easy to chuckle at the results and move on to the ones that actually tell us real things. But this time … this time Dean Debnam and company have gone a bridge too far: They asked 979 likely Wisconsin voters how they felt about “conservative media figures.”

Bias! Outrage! Somebody have a freakout!

Thankfully, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin stepped up. She spins us a yarn, beneath the totally accurate and only marginally hysterical headline “Exclusive: PPP caught doing advocacy polling on race”:

I spoke by phone today with Wisconsin voter Dave Summers, who lives in the Madison area. He told me, “I got a survey. I don’t normally answer these calls, but I did [this time]. I started out pretty normal — President, Senate.” However, he said it then got weirder. The automatic survey asked if he had a favorable or unfavorable impression of Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson. He said he was greatly disturbed when the automated call then asked, “Do you believe conservative media want white people to think Barack Obama hates them?” He said, “That bugged me.”

And what should we think of this, Ms. Rubin?

PPP, a Democratic polling outfit, has long been viewed by suspicion by not only conservatives but by independent, credible pollsters. Now there is all the more reason to discount its “polling” as shoddy partisanship.

Here is the situation: Drudge puts out a video of Obama talking to black people in 2007, a video last published in, oh, 2007. But THIS time around, they had a classic Scared White Folks narrative to fit it into, which they did, to make people think Obama maybe wanted to stand up for black people by stepping on whites.

The same week, PPP sends out this poll asking, among other normal-people questions about governors and presidents and stuff, “Do you think Barack Obama hates white people, or not?” and if that is the goal of some conservative media outlets.

This, obviously, means that PPP is the organization guilty of “shoddy partisanship.” Certainly not the people who randomly dredged up a video that’s been on the internet for five years.

Don’t worry though! Daily Caller editor Tucker Carlson, the smug, still-unwaterboarded Sean Hannity, and that Drudge guy are still so, so upset about it. According, that is, to the PPP Twitter account:

“Neil Munro just e-mailed me expressing concern that our WI poll may have made Drudge, Carlson, and Hannity feel disrespected,” the tweet said.

Munro, as you know, became the Disrespect Chancellor of the Free World when he attended remarks by the president of the United States and decided to interrupt him. Now he’s policing the bounds of tact by telling random pollsters that his boss has a case of the sads because he found out 92 percent of Wisconsin either has no idea what his website is or actively hates it. Mayhaps he is wiping his tears with birth certificates.

PPP should know better than to gauge the public’s reaction to a thing media people told them, and to follow up with asking how they feel about those media people. That’s not what polls are for.

SHODDY, Public Policy Polling! Shoddy. Even if you are actually pretty good at getting the important questions right, the unimportant questions hurt someone’s feelings, and now you are shoddy. [WaPo]

“Do you believe conservative media want white people to think Barack Obama hates them?” He said, “That bugged me.”

Then I answered, "Why yes, yes I do."

PsycWench October 12, 2012 at 3:21 pm

It bugged him because it was too complicated. They should stick to "Barack Obama: Satan or Minion of Satan?" like the nice conservative outlets do.

PugglesRule October 12, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Or "Barack Obama: Hitler or Hitler's Grandson?" That would work for them.

Lionel[redacted]Esq October 12, 2012 at 4:11 pm

What do these PPP people think, that a polling group can just call people and ask them random questions about their opinions?

slithytoves October 12, 2012 at 3:20 pm

True story: I have never once been called for a poll, and I have never been called to jury duty. Do I not exist? Somebody ask me for my fucking opinion!

PugglesRule October 12, 2012 at 3:33 pm

I've never been called for jury duty either *clings* But I get waaay too many calls from pollsters. That could be because I live in Wisconsin, where we've been in election mode for more than a year.

starfanglednut October 12, 2012 at 5:01 pm

I have been called for jury duty several times, but never by a pollster. I think it's cuz I'm in MA, so nobody gives a shit what I think.

I am permanently exempt from jury duty because I have very poor hearing. If you ever want to get out of jury duty; just act a bit deaf.

It's fun to use on the phone solicitors and pollsters, too. Pretend like you're interested in whatever hash they're slinging, but be really hard of hearing. See how long they last.

Two words, my friend: swing state. I bet half the calls I get here in NH are polls. Three this week alone.

Wanna get out of jury duty? Tell them your mom is an attorney. Worked like gangbusters for me!

bobbert October 13, 2012 at 1:12 am

I lived in extremely blue Santa Clara County for thirty years, and got exactly one poll call. To be fair, I may have missed some by being at work, but still, one.

Since mid-2009, I've lived in fairly-red Tuolumne County. During election season, I get a poll call about three times a week. And most of these arrive at times when I would have received them back in my Santa Clara County days, despite my work hours.

Who says there's any bias in polling?

Oh. That would be me.

bobbski October 13, 2012 at 8:21 am

Being an atypical senior citizen who only uses a cellphone, I haven't been bothered with too many polling calls.

bobbski October 13, 2012 at 8:19 am

I was 69 when I was first called to jury duty. The entertainment value is vastly overrated. You haven't missed much.

But, you do know what a myrmidon is, ain'a?

SayItWithWookies October 12, 2012 at 3:20 pm

If Assity and his buds want to create an issue but keep it under the radar they should just tell all the polling agencies that they don't want anyone to ask questions about it. I mean, if you expose every absurd, racist scare tactic to the light of day, of course people are gonna say it's stupid and they don't believe it — and who wants to know that? Now just shut up, read your Bibles, and vote for the Christian. Oh, wait.

zumpie October 12, 2012 at 3:21 pm

PPP "made Drudge, Carlson, and Hannity feel disrespected"? Now I really, really like them!

Also, too, also – PPP is viewed with skepticism? As opposed to Assmussen, ARG, Mason-Dixon, Gravis, Suffolk (who can;t be beothered to continue to poll in states that Bams is winning, cause it "isn't by enough") or Fox, themselves???

Yeah, we better do something about all that librul bias, huh?

no_gravity October 12, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Didn't Tucker Carlson just ask Not Doocy the other day if he wanted to join his white boys club?

PsycWench October 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm

Yeah, well, those Drudge, Carlson, and Hannity people aren't exactly respected. So there's that.

Doktor Zoom October 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm

So let me see if I have this right:

Saying Barack Obama hates white people: Not Racist or race-baiting

Asking –as in, "just asking," you know–"Does Barack Obama hate white people?": Not Racist or race-baiting

Asking "Do Conservative media figures try to make white people fear that Barack Obama hates white people?" : Totally racist race-baiting of the worst sort.

OK, I think I understand now.

bobbert October 13, 2012 at 1:16 am

By George, I think you've got it!

Now pass me that blunt, Ace.

Y'know, you have to almost…I said, almost!…pity conservatives. They're watching this "great grassroots movement", aka known as the TeaParty, go down in flames as Democrats and establishment Republicans turn their backs on them.

And they don't have the stones to even cowboy up, admit they went way too far, and get back on a horse.

I mean, lookit: just two years ago, they elected Walsh and Bachmann and West, and looked like they'd capture the GOP outright with a credible candidate in 2012.

Hell, even Scott Brown had to genuflect before them.

The seats in Congress haven't even gotten warm and all three of those asshats will be gone, and then Scott Brown follows.

I want to start an organization that will get us the people all ond board, or least a siginifcant amoutn of people who will make the commitment to answer each and every poly, survey, questionnaire exactly backwards. All that would be needed is about a 5 – 10% error rate and all the polls would end up totally wrong. Can you imagine people are asked if they are democrats or republicans and you answer just the opposite or give some other erroneous response. Screw up your responses and screw the polls and then no politician can rely on them to craft their politics.

bobbert October 13, 2012 at 1:29 am

Possible problem: the bulk of the American electorate is so stupid that they might respond to "backwards" polls by switching their affiliation to the "backward" position.

Be careful.

He told me, “I got a survey. I don’t normally answer these calls, but I did [this time]…"

He went on. "I never thought this would happen to me. At the time my neighbor was sunbathing. She's 24 and likes an all-over tan. She doesn't know I can see into her backyard from my attic window. Needless to say, that it where I took the survey."

Dave continued to explain the survey methodology. "When they asked if I hated white people, I was staring at the most beautiful bronze body God put on Earth. So naturally, I practically shouted 'No'!. Unfortunately, my neighbor heard me, looked up, and knew I was watching. I say 'unfortunately', but it turned out be the greatest afternoon of my life."

Dave then provide a very detailed explanation of what made it his greatest afternoon.

"My neighbor says she loves pubic poling. And I'm not going to argue!" he concluded.

Just like exposing racism is the real racism, asking people about Conservative's racism is even more extra realer.

PPP IS HITLER

Lionel[redacted]Esq October 12, 2012 at 4:22 pm

But all Tucker, Hannity and Drudge did was bring up five year old previously released video of Obama talking to Blacks about Black issues. That is no more racist then playing the same four Jeremiah Wright quotes over and over or questioning where Obama was born.

Do you like to see pictures of naked black women? Oh, yeah.
Asian? Hell yes?
Native-American? You betcha.
Muslim? Absolutely?
Democratic women? Any time, bro.
Republican women? Not with a gun to my head. Unfappable.
Thank you for your time, pervert.

PPP has pretty hysterical tweets, like this one:

PublicPolicyPolling ‏@ppppolls
I just learned that when Jennifer Rubin 'interviews' you all she really does is call you up and yell at you.

Why does Jen Rubin hate manners and professionalism?

Way to project power and authority Repugs. Whine about an absolute spot-on poll question and invoke your perpetual victimhood.

I know it's already been said, but PPP is one of the better pollsters out there, Dem or GOP-leaning. So, it totally makes sense that the GOP would be down on them.

BTW, this question was asked before all of the presidential and senate stuff, right? How is that really even push-polling?

Again, the only Polls that interest me are the Exit Polls and why are they being actively fought against in so many states?

I can't get up at all. My left leg and my back are in spasms. I'm taking Ibuprofen but it's not doing much. I'll try the calcium. Two days to wait before any human beings arrive.

Now don't you tease me about cannibalistic intentions.

Ok. So laying flat on your back, point your right foot (toes) down, release. Left foot point, release. Right heel stretch, left heel stretch. This will pull/ stretch your back. Then toes again. This will stretch muscles and get blood circulating. You can also pull leg up to chest one at a time, hug leg, release. Good for back. You will be a ballerina in to time. Feel better. Wish I had some of Humboldt's finest to give to you.Sent from iPhone

Thanks, sweetie. I *have* some of Humboldt's finest, and even that''s not doing the trick. But, interestingly, the calcium seems to be helping. Either that or the goddamned painkiller finally kicked in. I can't move the affected leg very much at all, but I'll try the stretches. I'm sure they'll help. Take care, sweetie, and thanks for the positive reinforcement.

Bananas? Just because some extra potassium can't hurt?

MittBorg October 13, 2012 at 1:27 am

Thanks, that's good advice. There is one left. Gee, I hope someone comes to rescue me soon.
