A new study from CloudResearch reveals that 11.7% of Republicans won’t admit their political preferences to pollsters – which is more than twice the number of Democrats at just 5.4%.
CloudResearch also found that “10.5% of Independents fell into the “shy voter” category, just a percentage point lower than how Republicans react to phone polls.”
When asked why they wouldn’t be truthful in their responses, “shy” respondents cited six concerns:
- A lack of trust in phone polls as truly being anonymous.
- An apprehension to associate their phone numbers with recorded responses.
- Fear that their responses will become public in some manner.
- Fear of reprisal and related detrimental impact to their financial, social, and family lives should their political opinions become publicly known.
- A general dislike of phone polls.
- Malicious intent to mislead polls due to general distrust of media and political pundits (though a sentiment expressed only by a few “shy voters”). …
