Column: AAPOR's Transparency Initiative

Topics: AAPOR , AAPOR Transparency Initiative , Disclosure , Peter Miller

My new column reviews AAPOR's Transparency Initiative as described in detail this past weekend by outgoing AAPOR President Peter Miller. I hope you'll click through and read it all. It may not be quite as consequential as health care reform, but in the polling world it has the potential to be a very big deal (to paraphrase our Vice President).

This column follows up on two items posted last week: The first reviews the rationale for the initiative, and the second features a video interview with Miller and includes the full list of participants "so far." Regular readers will know that AAPOR's initiative jives neatly with my own ongoing interest in improving disclosure of polling methodology (discussed most completely here).

Transparency is as transparency does. It really doesn't do any good because there is one political party who tries to reach out and go public with their platform, and another who will use that against them. Transparency doesn't really exist in any society, and I think it won't exist here.

Obama has tried to be open and tried hard to change washington, but his efforts have been used against him. Each party should use their own playbook, because in a dog eat dog political world, knowing too much information about the opponent will usually be used against them.

And this is why we need transparency.
It's becuase of pervasive election fraud, not non-existent voter fraud:
