Audio: Every household was polled? Yea? You kids are really sticking with that?

by Jeremy Hooper

Since we first posted about it on Friday, we've received scores of comments, emails, YouTube comments/emails, IMs, etc. from New Hampshire households who were never surveyed in a recent same-sex marriage poll. But that doesn't stop Cornerstone Policy Research and their buddies at Focus on the Family from peddling the almost unbelievably ridiculous claim that in two days time, they surveyed every last NH household on the subject:

[****UPDATE: The audio has now been pulled. Find out why.)]

Now, keep in mind that they're not saying they attempted to contact every household. They're not saying that they're using a representative sample that approximates the full spectrum of NH households. They, without any margin of error or qualifiers, are claiming that every single household in the Live Free or Die state weighed in on this subject, with 64% adding a caveat to the the first part of that state motto.

We've tried repeatedly to receive poll data/an explanation from CPR. When you look out your window on the twelfth of Never and see a flying pig carrying a snowman that he constructed in hell, then come back here to read CPR's response to us.

Your thoughts

That plus the fact that their 432k households number also seems to be one that they pulled out of their fact-challenged asses. The best estimate that I can come up with for a number-of-households in NH is closer to 500k (by taking the 470k number from the 2000 census and increasing it by the estimated 6.5% population growth since 2000).

But, like so many others of the lying liars' lies, this perfectly illustrates their modus operandi. The cabal bankrolls one (entirely unaccountable) band of liars, who then (on queue) fabricate an outrageous lie. Then all of the others can continue repeating that lie with impunity. They get to repeat these egregious, outlandish, flagrant lies as if they are truth -- just like all of the other lies that they peddle. And, even though they know that their jig is up, they seem to be doubling down rather than laying low.

But the gullibility of the religion-affected American public will probably never cease to bewilder.

Lying for Jesus, almost as good as we're burning alive at the stake to save your soul.

And how many registered voters in each household? Was each asked independently? We have secret ballots so that one doesn't have to tell a bigoted freak on the phone that you DO support equality.

And I finally got word back from my friends in NH.

Out of 20+ of their friends (they weren't really keeping track), the could only find about ten or so people with landlines anymore, and none of them have been polled.

What we should do is ask a school there to poll the students on this, but they wouldn't allow that at my friends school. X.x;
