"He points out that some pollsters mess up things deliberately when asking the wrong question at the wrong time. He gave an example of a poll showed that Americans hated the Arabs in a high point right after 9/11: "do you ask a recently divorced women what do you think of men??" asks Zogby. He argues that questions need to be studied first, for instance, one should ask this women how does she feel about her brother, grandfather…."

Interesting review by Sham on a talk held by an experienced pollster in the US. It'll make me think twice about poll results before taking them for their face value
