Are Polls Accurate?

It was brought to my attention that the Virginian-Pilot, second largest newspaper in the state  put up a poll of reader opinion a few days ago when the news of my testing methods first hit the fan.

The question:

Do you think a local AIDS activist should offer young people free HIV tests on the street?

So now we are voting on public HIV testing… hmm. I can live with that because all publicity is essentially good for our educational mission.  It actually seems pretty balanced (i always distrust polls that are lopsided with 90-10%  breakdowns.

As of tonight…


52% (246 votes)



44% (210 votes)


Not sure
