Screwed By The Broadus Effect?

Well, Prop 19 seems to have gone down to defeat bigtime. But what about the polls that showed the odds almost even?

Perhaps the Broadus Effect was responsible…that odd factor that makes people answer telephone polls differently than the way they vote. It seems that people talk to pollsters in terms of what they think the pollster wants to hear (in some well-meaning effort to “help” the person on the phone, or to appear more “hip”). That might explain why the polls showed Prop 19 doing a lot better than the actual vote (about 60% against at this time).

Shit, in any case.

About Old Hippie

http://gplus.to/OldHippie Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better. BeyondChronic.com is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.
