Internet Polls

  • Is there an inherent bias in online polling data?
  • Are certain groups more likely to respond than others?
  • Is there such a thing as a rampant Liberal?
  • Zogby seemed always to underestimate Obama's polling
  • What about Fox/Sky News Polls/ Metro Polls
Nice article in Scientific American that shows how right and left are defined by a few characteristics.
Can the bias be shown to be systematic? If so can it be corrected?
