  • Trisha, when you ask what percentage of your shopping dollars are spent on local businesses, do you expect that even one single respondent knows that information accurately? Not only do I not know what qualifies for that, I don’t have my budget spreadsheet here at work to be able to tell you the percentage.

    Because most of us have had negative experiences with poorly-managed, undereducated local businesses where the owner has never heard of a market survey or seen the inside of business school, why are these questions all phrased in the positive? Is this a push poll?

    Do you have a statistics background or are otherwise educated in how polls are designed? I sound like such an a****le here, really, but I was hoping for a real poll, not a push poll.

  • Neener, don’t expect a response. Someone, I assume this same person, spammed the Columbia Heights forum with this poll, never bothering to engage anyone in conversation, just throwing out a URL.
