you know for sure the Bernie crowd would be all over that, swarming with the negativity if it were Hillary in the same seat. It wouldn't count then either if any Hillary supporter were stupid enough to try and use these types of polls.

Your 50 states thread, and now this type of stuff is really embarassing to the rest of us Dems that prefer more grounded reality based polls.

51. So far, apparently to prove that people can cheat on these polls, two of Hillary's

supporters have stated to me they did just that, one in this thread actually. Stated they voted 'more than once'.

I voted only in one of the polls after the debate and I only clicked once for Bernie.

So it appears that Hillary supporters ARE 'clicking', some more than once, and she STILL can't seem to win a singe online poll.

apparently the do as they themselves admit.

I have a study on the impact of Social Media, Twitter in particular, on predicting elections which I intend to post later.

I'm fine with Hillary's campaign still living in the past regarding the new technology that is, even according to pollsters themselves, going to have to be incorporated into polling methodologies to keep up with the times, as the old methods are lacking now in many ways to accurately predict outcomes.

66. So, according to you,

 

Proving that someone can vote more than once in the same poll translates into Hillary voters wasting our time by continually voting multiple times in a poll we know is unscientific and further, we are obviously so few in numbers we can't move the poll. Perhaps the proof the poll is bullshit - as is any poll where you can vote more than once - was just to prove to you why we don't waste our valuable time voting for bullshit polls. Nah - it must be that ALL POLLS THAT DON'T SHOW BERNIE AHEAD ARE OBVIOUSLY SKEWED. And now we've gone round the bend and have Bernie supporters making the same argument we all laughed at when Romney's people tried it. Unbelievable.

Lol, right here in this thread one Hillary supporter, NOT ME, I'm a Bernie supporter, stated doing just that.

I have participated in exactly ONE poll, and clicked just ONCE for Bernie.


You will have to direct your comment to Hillary's supporters who admit to clicking more than once.

On a large 2 foot by 3 foot foam board write

HONK
FOR
BERNIE

Go to a busy intersection and hold the sign up high so the drivers can read it.

A couple of things will happen, it might get loud with horns honking and others will realize how many supporters he has.

Now is the time for a real progressive populist movement, but the message needs to be clear and not overly complex and it needs to be repeated over and over to drive it home into the minds of the people.

Then Bernie will win.

Hillary can't win an online poll. The candidates all have the same conditions for these polls. If I were her campaign, I would be very concerned about the consistency with which she loses these polls across the political spectrum.

I prefer Bernie. All 3 are better than any repubs. Let's make sure our disagreements are concerning policy and character and not sexist or blind prejudice. After looking at republican's field I'm grateful we have such good qualified candidates running for president on the dem side. Hillary was double Obama in the polls at this point in her last election cycle and I can'r forget how Hillary sided with McCain against Obama saying he was not experienced enough like the 2 of them were to be president...and I thought to myself you never side with a republican against your fellow candidate...but it was the condescending way she said it. Bernie has always been Bernie but Hillary not so much. Still I will vote for her is she is our candidate.

87. But none of that explains

why, assuming Bernie supporters and Hillary supporters all have roughly the same access to online polls, are they consistently showing Bernie in the lead? Originally you claimed that the Hillary supporters aren't interested in participating in online polls but offered no evidence. Now you're claiming two things: 1) There is no data, in which case you have no proof at all that these polls are unscientific or that Hillary supporters aren't interested in participating online polls, and 2) that it's unscientific because people can vote more than once which is not at all the case for all online polls. Very few of them fit into that category, as a matter of fact. But all that aside it still does not answer the original question which was that there is a reasonable assumption to be made that Bernie supporters and Hillary supporters all have roughly the same access to online polls, and, if that is so, why are ALL of them showing Bernie on top?

Thanks.

Btw, I like the "marginal candidates" thing. 'Course, when a candidate is attracting 20,000 + one has to wonder how marginal that actually is. Clicking on an online poll is one thing, driving several hours to see a "marginal candidate" is quite another. Add to that the thousands of events that are created for the "marginal candidate" every week. The Wall Street candidate doesn't seem to have the same enthusiasm. Wonder why that is?

185. My source is....

..... "i think". It's just my opinion based on personal experience and observations in the past of supporters of third-party / second tier / idelogicaly rigid / marginal candidates .

"Marginal" might be a bit harsh. However, you have to admit bernie isn't mainstream .

I heard bernie on cspan yesterday . He was asked, how , even if he did win the presidency, he could achieve his goals against a Republican congress. He started going on and on about the "movement", the "revolution", inspiring "millions and millions" of voters, etc, etc. I'm thinking this guy knows he isn't going to win and he knows congress isn't going to turn so he's doing this song and dance just to whip up his base into an enthusiastic frenzy. Right or wrong this is what I consider a marginal candidate.

As I suspected. Well, there's going to be a revolution in this country one way or another. It's already begun. We can do it legally and peacefully, or, if the status quo Wall Street darlings want to continue shutting out the 99% in the political process, this country will see another kind of revolution. Whistle past the graveyard all you want, but make no mistake, it's coming.

My advice is that you confine your "revolutionary activities" to answering on line polls. You'll live longer and stay out of jail.

explain that in fact Hillary's supporters DO participate, if you look at the polls you see them clicking just like everyone else. The problem seems to be that Bernie has more supporters in so many of these polls.

Hillary has always had a huge problem generating enthusiasm.

Enthusiasm is also a good measurement of the commitment supporters will have in showing up at the polling place to vote for that candidate.

The Clinton campaign knows this stuff, thats why they have been running (scared) a full court press since the first debate, using her long time ties to the DC media to try and tamp down enthusiasm for Bernie so it doesnt turn around and bite her in the early primaries.

They are desperate to try and reinforce the notion that theres no point in voting for Bernie, since "he cant win" anyway.

Its all political bullshit games, utilized by some desperate people.

Completely fact free. That is what your statement there is. My statement wasn't dismissive at all. I directly laughed at how easy it is for massive corporations to lead many around by their noses, as it the case here. Touting click-bait polls, put together by institutions ten times the size of CNN, says nothing about reality. This is the corporate media attempting to create a race for their own profits where one doesn't currently exist. They know the best way for them to do so it to make their own news with these false polls as the actual scientific polls say something completely different. Not sure what you have against science but it actually means something to most of us. This is one hundred percent corporate medias way to get readers and to have LIV's spread bullshit in hopes of a race. It's going to be a real shocker for some when Sanders doesn't even come in second in Iowa. They are going to go back and pick unscientific polls to call bullshit. Nothing but a republican tactic.

36. Her campaign is run by old school political people. They have no idea of the

power of the new media. Obama's and Bernie's supporters are very tech savvy. Change is hard for some people and her campaign spends huge amounts of money on the old, traditional polls.

They don't get that those polls are using outdated methodologies, which they themselves admit.

Eg, landlines, as the number of people NOT using landlines grew over the past number of years, pollsters didn't keep up with the changing trend and were not polling young people, eg, who don't use landlines. They have admitted this and are now trying to include more cell phone users, but laws prevent them from calling cells phones and I believe Gallup is in the middle of a lawsuit right now, or many it's been settled regarding cell phone calls.

Also people's distrust in polls has skyrocketed over the decades, meaning huge numbers of people are refusing to respond to pollsters.

Not to mention that some people will lie to them.

So to say that online polls are useless, is simply inaccurate. Sure they are not 'scientific' but they provide an instant picture of people's reactions right after an event, such as a debate like this.

One such poll eg, polled 71% of people who did not watch the debate.

What kind of methodology is that?

As we all know, those are the vast majority of people who will vote in 2016.

I recall when the same thing happened in 2004 with Dennis Kucinich. He was the most liberal candidate available and therefore a shoe-in for the White House, until he wasn't.

80. I remember it happening with Obama who was, the most liberal candidate available

at the time which was four years later when participation by voters online had exploded. And it appears that they chose Obama.

I also remember the derisive posts such as I am seeing here, again, regarding online polls back then.


Times have changed, a lot more people now using the internet than landlines and traditional pollsters have not caught up to that, which they admit.

Bernie clearly was more impressive in both debates. O'Mally imo, was far better than Hillary also.

No, they don't.

As I said, it's gone from painful to watch to amusing. The sentence I quoted from you here is completely false. Corporate media has you hook, line, and sinker. I highly doubt you typed that sentence with a straight face. It is simply a blatant falsehood you are promoting.

"No one said they are 'accurate'."

Serious competing thoughts you have going on here. If you believed the sentence I quoted above, you wouldn't have been able to start with this one. Though if one is attempting to spin what corporate media is selling, starting off with the truth and then spinning out of reality becomes necessary, so I get why you presented it in the manner you did.

Want to play a game? I'll throw out some online instant polling from events in the past and we will laugh it up as you spin each one as somehow representing something. lol.

A recent study of the power of Social Media is out, regarding its power to predict events, including politics. I think I will post it.

The old ways are proving to be inaccurate for many reasons. Pollsters have been studying why they are failing to properly predict outcomes of elections eg.

People CAN and DO lie to pollsters btw.

Even more refuse now to participate due to a skyrocketing mistrust in traditional polls which has grown over the decades.

Not to mention the use of mostly landline users a demographic that has decreased rapidly over the past number of years.

It is nice to see you move on from your initial narrative to this. Big change. Yes, social media is extremely powerful. Not just in predicting events, but in swaying peoples purchase power and thought process. It is a brilliant, empowering, yet a horrifying new power in society. As is being done with their online polling, these corporate entities have a new way to game those with limited critical thinking skills. Facebook can flat out move opinion. It's why they are the beast they are and such an enormous corporation. I successfully use Facebook for my company. We literally change people's movements. People think facebook is simply about the people. They clearly haven't seen the side of facebook I have. I use them to BUY influence.

You're just either not completely savvy with how Twitter works or you're deliberately using language that suggests there was something unsavory occurring when there was not. When you promote a tweet it has nothing to do with 'buying the top Twitter trend', it is basically just an advert that appears in the space above the top trending tweets. It is no more unscrupulous than any other form of advertizing yet it was misunderstood by some and mischaracterized by others as a negative or sneaky move by Sander's campaign.

You see I was actually being kind, I assumed you had misunderstood rather than deliberately attempted to decieve. I'm nice like that.

There is absolutely zero ethical difference between purchasing the Promoted Tweet spot or purchasing a slot on prime time TV to run a campaign advert. The main difference being that $200,000 buys you very little good TV coverage, so buying it on Twitter at a time when lots of people are going to be using Twitter is actually very clever.

If your point was that his campaign did something very effective and intelligent, then I am happy to concede your point.

Wall Street gaffe is what confirms that she is the big loser from the debate.

O'Malley did well in the debate, but you wouldn't know that unless you watched it.

Sanders did well, too, but that will be lost on those hundreds of millions of Americans who did not watch the debate.

Clinton did a very good job aside from her unfortunate 9/11-Wall Street comment, but almost all of America won't know that either.

The only widely repeated story from the debate was the Clinton gaffe and so, whoever won the debate, it definitely wasn't Clinton.

Online polls do not capture a large demographic: older voters. Older voters are just less likely to engage in social media and participate in such polls, as another DUer pointed out:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=817095

And right now, older Dem voters widely favor Hillary while Bernie has a lot of his supporters among the youngest Dem demographic, that love to click online polls. That is why Bernie gets ridiculously lopsided results in his favor on such polls.

Maybe they don't like it when Bernie wins anything, even meaningless things.

I've made my choice for reasons I have stated over many posts. Browbeating me, insulting me, mocking me, or any other thing you can toss out there will have no effect. I really don't care about these online polls. They are what they are. Convenience samples of whoever happens to see them at any given moment should they be on FB or whatever.

153. As I said,

you flatter yourself. What you do is not discourse by any stretch of the imagination.

157. And telling people they are browbeating you because they post links to polls that

are favorable to their candidate, as if NO ONE ever does that, is 'discourse'?

159. Your posts are

consistently over the top rude, no matter how one tries to engage with you. Perhaps counting to ten and taking a deep breath and reading what you have typed before hitting the "post " button would help with your presentation.

154. "This is a political discussion forum"

On this we agree which is why everyone is free to reply to anyone else.

147. And if they mean everything, why the eternal campaign to trumpet it?

 

I mean, if your polls are accurate, then Sanders has nothing to worry about, right? Boy, is everyone else going to have egg on their faces!

133. Well I guess Clinton might as well hang it up.

Definitive proof that she can't win the election. Except that I thought Bernistas didn't believe in polls...

It is clear at this point you are just mocking Sanders supporters. Not nice.

152. Washington Times! Fox! Internet Polls!!

The Young (and fired) Turks!



Yeah, the results are "in" alright! Click, clear cache, click!

Ok then, let's all abandon hope Right F...ing Now!!!

You can't bully people with fake data into making them love him, you know. The attempt, quite frankly, is pathetic.

155. That's all you saw? Okay!!!

I love that Bernie's support is across the political spectrum too. Unlike Hillary which is confirmed in the straw poll, which is limited only to the Dem base, which is now only 32% of the electorate and he now has one third of that also, with numbers tending upward all the time.

160. My favorite denouncing of the online polls is...

The one where they say it's people from Europe and China voting for Bernie online. That is so cool Bernie is much more loved in other countries than Hillary.

212. Yep

They love him in Europe not exactly something to criticize. So far I have seen Denmark, poor people, the pentagon, white liberal males, Cornell West, and climate change, become terrible things to Hillary supporters.

213. Lol, these polls sure get a few people very agitated around here. But my question is

if they are meaningless, as they claim, then why all the angst over them?

I rarely alert so no worries. Why would you think anyone would alert on that comment?
