Iran:Iranian bloggers as pollsters

Jordan shares in Sounds Iranian blog, the idea that it is possible to use bloggers as pollsters. The blogger says I think the idea behind this sort of ‘on-the-street’ methodology is to use the blogosphere to provide a more accurate sampling of the (urban) Iranian population as a whole, rather than to procure a sample derived only from a very narrow blog-reading demographic.

  • I am from Israel I hope that bloggers all over the world should be free to exchange views on their dayly lives ,opinions dreams etc.. whithout any prejudice ,in a friendly matter
    Should some iranian citizen respond to my opinion he will be surprised to hear that Cyrus the Great was the first sionist of history by sending the Jews back to Sion from their Babilon exile .which took place in the 5-th centuryAD
