Thread Name: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
Subject: RE: BS: 'Gay marriage' question
I've already showed you one, a Guardian ICM poll. Yes, in terms of absolute numbers responding, counting all the signatures on anti petitions and all the postcards in the anti postcard campaign, you got a majority. I'm not arguing with the tactics of the anti people. Good for them. But if you really want to know with any degree of accuracy the true proportions for and against in the whole population, you don't do it that way. You poll a large enough representative sample of the population, not just sit there encouraging your bedfellows to roll up. God knows why I have to explain this to you.
