Behavior Research Center poll is factually incorrect

The Behavioral Research Center released their latest Rocky Mountain Poll the other day. It shows the Republican presidential nominee as surprisingly week in his own home county. Before you read too much into the poll you should realize that is contains a major error. It lists Ralph Nader as the Green Party nominee. The fact is he is NOT the Green Party nominee. The poll says it was conducted in late July. Anyone who reads the news would know that Cynthia McKinney won the Green Party nomination on July 12, 2008. Surely the gang at Behavioral Research Center follows the news enough to know who is the Green Party nominee.

One has to ask, given this glaring error, what else about the poll has been fixed. Why was the poll not conducted statewide? Did the numbers not fit the template that Behavioral Research Center had before conducting the poll?

  1. George of the Desert says

    The BRC is a Democrat-leaning (o.k. falling over Democrat) poll. Not only that, his methodology is usually sloppy and his results are often just plain wrong. This has been known for years. Heck, even the New Times did a study of his polls years ago and found them weak and easy to pick apart.

  2. George is correct…

    It IS spelled “weak”, not “week”…
