If you’ve followed any of my comments on Gerry’s blog or on Gerry’s facebook wall, you know that I chided him about “not publishing the source” of his mysterious poll numbers. According to KTBS’s Gerry May, they were from a trusted source.
“… I don’t see egg on my face. But it’s there. Let me see if I can wipe it off.” — Gerry May
- Is there any way to gauge how much affect it had? Not really.
- Should Gerry be reprimanded for pushing the numbers? I think the court of public opinon will be enough.
- Does Gerry get brownie points for owning his mistake? A few.
- Should we trust poll numbers or data (of any sort) without a source? Never.
