From today's front page:
New government will not help economy - poll
"a majority does not think an alternative government would do any better": The Irish Times - Sat, Oct 02, 2010
However, data in response to the question give quite a different story.
The question: "If there were to be a change in government do you think that a new government would improve, have no impact, or worsen our economic situation?"
- Improve: 39%
- Have no impact: 45%
- Worsen: 6%
I take this to mean voters feel a change in government would improve as opposed to worsen our economy by a factor of almost 5 to 1.
Or using the same logic in the quotation but in the other direction, 84% of voters feel a change in government would not worsen the economy.
Why such a ludicrous misrepresentation of the findings of their own poll?
