More poll trouble for Newsbusters

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

Last week, Newsbusters ran a poll on its web site asking "Will Obama be a one term president" -- but the four answers readers could choose from didn't include a "yes." It takes some effort to come up with four responses to a yes/no question, none of which are "yes." But Newsbusters pulled it off.

Now, they're back at it:

That's right: they forgot to include a "yes" option. Again.

The next time Newsbusters complains about polling methodology (as they tend to do whenever a real poll contains results they don't like) you should keep in mind that the Newsbusters crew doesn't understand that when you ask a yes-or-no question, you have to give people the ability to answer "yes" or "no."
