Doug Schoen has 2 poll reports

According to Chris Wilson, there are two versions of the report of the Occupy Wall Street poll from pollster Doug Schoen.

Very similar, except for that last phrase, “no matter what the cost.” I have no idea which was actually asked to the survey participants, but it’s a reminder of the difficulties of public opinion research—sometimes you don’t even know what question was asked!

I’m not implying anything sinister on Schoen’s part, it’s just interesting to see these two documents floating around.

P.S. More here from Kaiser Fung on fundamental flaws with Schoen’s poll.
