Why Internet Polls Can't Be Trusted

Canoe Politics, Canada Votes:

What I find kind of funny (or sad), is that the "94%" bar looks more like 65% - which is closer to the truth, but still a bit off.

Your bar observation is interesting. But the results of the poll are accurate. There is a big difference between intention to vote and actually voting. I believe that 94% of people intend to vote. But actually getting their butts out the door on election day when there are so many good things to watch on television is another story.
