    This poll has been widely discussed in the US and was analysed closely by five thirty-eight and deemed a good poll.

    It is a very surprising result.

    504 asked in every state - that amounts to roughly 10 per state... Did they go into Pine Ridge for the 10 they asked in South Dakota? I somehow doubt it.

    One has to wonder, which Native Americans they asked - those on the reservations or the apples. (Do remember that our venerable BBC couldn't find any SNP voters in the run up to the General Election, so they got the responses they wanted).

    This is a regular topic of discussion and objection in all of the Native American publications. If the objection rate were so low, then I doubt that it would occupy so much space in their own media.

    According to POR 12.1 which, of course, we all strictly follow, there are only a few flags that we are permitted to use. The US Confederate Flag is not one of them.

    this was examined over 2 weeks by five thirty eight who are critical of bad polling and it was deemed a good poll...

    NY times make same point as you here:
