Because the SLOP poll is self selective, there is no way that the poll will hold any real weight or represent the whole population, because we only get information on those who choose to do an interview versus the people who decline interviews.A better way to conduct a poll is through random sampling where the persons chosen are from a selected group of variables, such as class, age, race and ethnicity, say 100 people of each race/ethnicity, or 100 people from certain age groups.
