… The Rand Corp. is trying something quite different this year. And part of what’s interesting is that the results are pretty much the same as everybody else’s.
Rand’s 2012 Presidential Election Poll involves a single panel of voters who are asked the same three questions over and over.
Since July 11, each of its 3,500 participants has answered the questions on a weekly basis — but staggered so that one-seventh of the results come in every day. They answer the questions online, and those who didn’t have Internet access before the poll are given computers to use. [cont.]
