From The Filipino Channel, the Best Poll Result You’ll See All Day

Because my household is 80% Filipinas and 20% me, we subscribe to The Filipino Channel here in LA. They do a pretty good hour-long news show on U.S. news. For that show, they occasionally do polls. (They have a decent number of participants in each, though I can’t answer for the methodology.)

The results of the poll that they did last night — which was teased without the last line in yellow and then displayed in full after a commercial — cracked me up so much that I had to take a shot of the screen. Yeah, I’d say that that’s a pretty compelling result!

Probability of error by House Republicans: also close to 100%.

Note: I’m not (merely) posting this to make fun of Republicans, some of whom are my good friends.  I am posting it so that they can beat on their Representatives with a hefty clue stick and stop the madness.

UPDATE: I can’t find out how many people are in the sample, but as some of their polls have percentage splits like 61%-39%, which you don’t get from having 12 or fewer, it seems likely that it’s more than a mere handful of people. Anyway, here’s the video of the report:


About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
