Not so sure you're right about that. I know it was only a Flash Poll so there is a 5.7 % margin of error (as disclosed) however it was designed and conducted by two very professional companies and not by Civitas per se.
"Respondent households were selected at random, using Random Digit Dialed (RDD) sample provided by Survey Sampling, of Fairfield CT. All respondents heard the questions asked identically. Research methodology, questionnaire design and fieldwork for this survey were completed by SurveyUSA of Clifton, NJ. This statement conforms to the principles of disclosure of the National Council on Public Polls."
That's science, not art. Artfully done science at that. Not liking the results doesn't invalidate the poll.
As far as "Attacking the Mayor on baseball, or annexation for that matter, is only the tip of the spear." goes, you're spot on. I couldn't have said it better. Nice to see we agree on at least that.
