MQM a national party? No says Facebook, Yes says Tribune poll

Posted on Updated on

So we opted to run an interesting poll today in light of Chaudhry Nisar of the PML-N declaring the MQM to not be a national party. The question:

In your opinion, is the MQM a national party?

We ran this poll (as always) simultaneously on the Tribune site and our Facebook page. The results?

 

The voting on the Facebook page (where one userid = one vote, so cheating would require making a HUGE number of ids, OR convincing a large number of supporters to go vote) went quite heavily against the MQM with 349 people voting so far:

On the Tribune site poll (where there are many ways to cheat – though usually people aren’t invested enough to bother), 2 hours into the poll, the results looked kinda the same with less than 200 people having voted at the time.

Three hours later I check back to find this is the new tally:

Er…

Hm…

Er…
