It astonishes me how the media still treat polls seriously, given that they’re utterly fraudulent.
They’re fraudulent because they put a series of selected questions to people which lead to distorted conclusions.
By far the most farcical I’ve seen is one the Dominion Post front-paged a few months back, this concluding half of New Zealanders feel happy, that men were happier than women, that Hawkes Bay was the happiest location and Otago the least, and so on.
This poll was conducted by Stuff, but get this. It surveyed 2000 Kiwis across the nation for God’s sake, this out of 5.2 million.
