Gallup #2: Polling

27 Aug

I hope last week’s pump primer intrigued you.

 

The Gallup homepage is well organized and information rich. Here you will find the most recent articles based on polling, the Gallup Daily polls, the Gallup Business Journal, Editor’s Picks and Interactive Features. Take care, you may find yourself spending too much time linking from this site.

Across the top in green are links to the four major topics that Gallup measures: Politics, Economy, Well-Being & World. Let begin with Politics. It’s reasonably easy to navigate where you are going by returning to the homepage.

The organization of the politics page is similar to the homepage: articles on recent polling results, actual weekly and monthly polling averages, popular topics within this heading. This is the page for political junkies.

Next week. Let’s look at the Economy page.

There are a couple of ways that people can subscribe to this blog. Click the “+ Follow” link on the bottom right section of the site and enter your email address. This is a very easy way to receive the newest post as an email. The other way is via RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed. The RSS Feed link is located on the right sidebar of the site, directly above the Categories section. Click on “RSS – Posts” to receive your posts in their favorite RSS reader. The RSS reader that many prefer is Google Reader (http://reader.google.com). It is free, well organized, and easy to use.
