The most fascinating thing about this thread is watching conservatives pretend that they are now interested in facts.

"You libtards are just wishing against facts that Russia fixed the election? Wha? Huh? Climate change? Let's not be too hasty now...."

The only conservative I see in this thread is HurricaneDitka and he's only talked about the poll.

So there are 138 questions in this poll. I'm not going to go through them all to find the one you're talking about. Care to just tell me which question it is?

I found it. It's the third part of question #42, a 4-parter. Preceding question #42, there have been six multi-part questions: two 10-part questions, two 8-part questions, a 7-parter, and a 5-parter. So effectively it's question #86 in a poll that the respondent isn't even 1/3 of the way through yet.

I don't know about you, HD, but if I was still hanging in there at that point, I wouldn't exactly be making nuanced distinctions when I read/heard (depending on mode) and responded to a question.

So how far into any given poll do you think we should stop treating it as statistical evidence and start disregarding it? 50 questions? 25? 10? 3?

No, they just manipulated American stupidity in order to get Donald Trump elected President.
