More on Dodgy polls, Ctd

Colin Craig said he was going to win in Rodney based on dodgy polls from Research First.

I blogged about it at the time and Research First’s CEO took issue with my accusations of their dodgy methodologies.

 I am happy to talk to you about the many steps taken in that particular piece of research to ensure robust results were achieved (and I welcome, in general, your critique of ‘dodgy’ and unscientific polls). In this case, however, your ad homenim dismissal of Research First’s work is misplaced and I would appreciate you publishing a retraction.

I stand by my statements, Research First does dodgy polls.

Here is why.

Rodney Electorate

Colin Craig – 7569
Mark Mitchell – 18580

Majority – 11,011

Dodgy is as dodgy does. Research Forst and Colin Craig are dodgy.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
