Poll Shows Support For Lake Michigan Water To Waukesha, But...

Maybe 343 people is a statistically-sound sample, but if 61% are age 55 and over, is that sound polling?

Does that reflect the breakout of Waukesha voters?

I really don't know.

And why does the PR attached to the poll say "just under 400" people were polled if the true number is 343?

Hey James, the attributes of this poll you are critically questioning today sound almost exactly the same as the "The People Speak" poll you were so excited about about yesterday.

Guess the outcome of the poll determines how valid it is, at least in your worldview.

Of course, you can read the entire poll yourself.
