Ring… Ring… Been Polled?

Why Tuesday? is proud to be a co-sponsor of The Polling Project, an exciting initiative from the Huffington Post’s OffTheBus that will take an in-depth look at how campaigns shape their messages.

We’re joining an unbelievable team of journalists and bloggers that have signed up to help unravel the mystery behind polls: What questions are asked? How do they choose who to call? And of course, how do they come to their conclusions?

This is a collaborative project, and we need your help!

Get a phone call from a campaign about being polled? Grab a pen, and take notes. We’re asking you all to share your polling experiences via this simple form in order to tell us exactly how the poll went down. Don’t forget to listen extra-carefully about questions about elections or election reform… or the lack of questions! And stay tuned for the results.

As Arianna Huffington wrote yesterday when the project launched, “For too long, the polling industry has had the luxury of operating largely under-the-radar. The Polling Project aims to move polling from under-the-radar to under the microscope.”
