    Every time you select a sample there will be some potential for sampling error; I understand that. However, to get close to the mark you need to strive to reduce sampling bias. That’s where I would argue your approach is weak. Yes, pollsters make generalizations, but the more accurate ones use random samples, not convenience samples. I like your research idea and I’m sure there is some truth to your findings, but your methods are questionable and you don’t seem to have a good defense for them. This approach would not even hold up in a BA-level research methods course.

    p.s. I am a pollster.

  2. Greetings! Very useful advice within this article! It’s the little changes that produce the largest changes. Many thanks for sharing!

    I read regular books during my commute to and from work. I don’t get it — why are audio books better than regular books?

  4. They aren’t. It’s just hard to read a book when you are driving or traveling. Utilizing our travel time to listen to audio books is a good use of your time.
