The Princess came home with an assignment for Social Studies: poll 20 eligible voters, asking "If the election were held today, who would you vote for?"
All the data will be turned into a bar graph, due Tuesday.
I pointed out that this would be less than scientific, since the people she knows or might see in the next few days are not necessarily a representative sampling of the general population. For instance, the three registered voters in our household are all in the same party and represent no interesting ethnic groups with the possible exception of quasi-Norwegian or Somewhat Swedish Yet Nominally German or Who Really Knows Anyway? We do have one attractive member of the 18-24 (or is it 25?) voting group. Or maybe that’s one member of the attractive group. Or both. In any event, we’re not particularly diverse.
On the other hand, the way things are going, she’s just as likely to get it right as Zogby.
(Last count: 3 for Obama, 17 voters to go.)
