The Mystery Poller on the mystery of non-pollster John Zogby:

Consumers of Zogby’s Iraq troop poll data also need to understand where it fits on the continuum between strict probability-based sampling and non-random convenience sampling. Zogby certainly believes that “security concerns” prevent further disclosure, that we do not “need to know” more. Perhaps. But without knowing more, it is hard to decide whether to trust the results.

If any serviceman or woman was polled by the Zogby folks in the last few weeks, drop me an e-mail at hugh@hughhewitt.com. I have a method to verify if in fact you were, and I’d like to develop sme more info on this bit of propaganda dressed up as polling. Milbloggers, if you have any leads, please pass along. Given that Zogby allegedly polled more than 900 of the deployed, it shouldn’t be that hard to come up with at least a few. My e-mail is hugh@hughhewitt.com. Please describe your ecnounter with the Zogby staff –time of day, method of contact etc.

UPDATE: See also Riehl World View’s research on Zogby’s partner. And Wizbang has more.
