Have You Been Called by a NBBL Pollster?

March 28, 2011

Via Aaron Naparstek:

Someone is paying a pollster to do a PPW #bikenyc lane phone survey. Probably NBBL. If you get a call, write down exactly what they ask you.

Send what you can to me or post to Twitter with the #bikenyc hashtag.  Though NBBL has claimed for ages that the Lander/Levin survey is not valid because many people were not reached in person — when, in fact, they were — you can be sure that whoever is doing this survey will make little to no effort to broaden the reach of the survey beyond phone calls.  As I noted on Twitter, you can bet this poll won’t adjust for people without landlines.

Still, with NBBL’s their superb knack for confirmation bias, they’ll claim 75% of respondents are against the lane, call their friends at the Post, CBS2, and tout it as proof that the bike lane was jammed down the community’s throat.  It’s all so predictable.  Keep me posted.

UPDATE: Streetsblog has a post on the subject.  Contact them if you get called.

    I assume they’ll also only call during the day, which means that only old cranks with no jobs (the NBBLS4S contingent) will be represented in the poll.
