Zogby’s Folly

Email Email Print

You will no doubt have heard of Zogby’s new poll touting the lead finding: U.S. Troops in Iraq: 72% Say End War in 2006

This finding is so fundamentally at odds with almost everything I have heard from milbloggers, returning troops and visitors to Iraq –including Victor Davis Hanson who just returned last week from a vsit to many of the bases around the country– that I dug into the small print, and then went to find expert analysis from places like The Mystery Pollster and The Democracy Project.

Bottom line: John Zogby took ant-war activist dollars, mixed in some secret questions and methodologies, and asks the American public to trust him. Before you do, recall his performance on Election Day, 2004.

My producer reached Zogny on his cell phone to request an on-air interview. Zogby hung up on him.

No serious media outlet should carry this “poll” as “news,” but its lure as more anti-war agitprop will overwhelm news judgment.
