Polling for 2009

A reader emails (and blogs!) about a telephone survey poll he participated in about the mayor’s race.

Questions, according to reader Raul Rothblatt, came from PPO Research, and went like this:

“Do you consider yourself very liberal, liberal, conservative or very conservative?”

“What is your religion?”

 “How often do you attend religious services?”

 “When choosing a candidate, do you consider party affiliation or independent judgment?”

 “Should government support go to fighting terrorism or fighting economic uncertainty?”

 There were also some non-political questions, such as:

“When you are at a party, do you like to talk to people you know or do you talk to new people?”

 “What worries you more, violent or white collar crime?”

 My favorite question, and the only one I made sure to get exactly, was:

“For statistical purposes, how would you describe your sexual orientation?”
