19. Isn't "rBr" the net reluctant Bush and Kerry responders?
Edited on Mon May-23-05 08:55 PM by kiwi_expat
Of course there are reluctant Bush responders and reluctant Kerry responders. We all agree that is true. :-) That is why there is a 50% response rate.

The term "rBr" is usually used as a net, meaning that the reluctant responders included (slightly) more Bush voters than Kerry voters. But the net could be negative ("rKr") or zero.

We really should use a neutral term for the net, such as ("Positive"/"Negative") "Reluctant Respondent Differential".
