A guy was involved with a push poll in a publically funded medium in Canada (currently heading to the polls), by which just about everyone comes out a “Liberal”:
Here’s the first experiment. It only takes a minute. Go through the survey and answer every question with “no opinion” as your answer. Of course, skip the part where it asks you to choose parties or leaders (that would be taking an opinion). Surprise! The CBC push-poll says you’re a Liberal.
Even though you gave absolutely no legitimate reason to be pegged as a Liberal. Like I say; Loewen and friends rigged the system.
Now try a completely different approach. Go through the survey again and simply alternate clicking “strongly agree” and “strongly disagree”. Again, skip the section where it asks you to rate the party leaders or parties themselves — but answer the 30 policy questions with alternating extreme agreement and disagreement. Surprise! The CBC push-poll says you’re a Liberal.
About him we also learn:“He’s part of an American team studying genetic influences on human political behaviour.”
