I never claimed it to be scientific or statistically solid. We also come right out and say how many respondents are included. Not hiding anything or claiming anything it is not.

Simply a polll, not a survey or a study. A poll.

Easy....you can want something but not agree with its cost. I figure that there may be people in Lake Oswego that want a streetcar but not at the hefty cost proposed. I want a new new I-5 Columbia River crossing, but not at $4 billion.

I have updated the wording from "uncovered" to "claimed" for the PETA reference.

Yes, they are two separate companies and products but the Frontier product still carries the name FiOS (per the license agreement between the two companies). Therefore, it is not misleading to use the term, in our opinion.

Why is it unlikely that the unknowns don't live in Portland? My guess is that the unknowns follow the same distribution of the knowns. Regardless, if we remove the unknowns from the analysis, he still has fewer than 50% of his US followers in Oregon (44.7% to be exact, up from 41.6% when unknowns are included). Of all of his followers, removing the unknown from both the country and state lists, his Oregon followers are just 36.6% of his total.

As for the idea of him spending time/money on a service to get followers.....I'd personally prefer that he did that rather than spend his own time following and following back tens of thousands of followers. I am sure you realize how time consuming that would be.

But if he didn't use a service/software to get all these followers, how did he manage to rack up so many non-oregon followers? He isn't that well known or popular outside of Oregon, let alone the US.
