As usual you are posting articles from biased sources with misleading information without bothering to fact check. It appears that the poll that this article was based on was not of the public but of an anti-tax membership organization representing a fraction of the public with very specific views. Just more slanted bullshit from Breitbart.

That’s how political polls work...all of them. Find a group that agrees with your agenda and push it... Every side of the circle does it.

Next are you going to post a link to Snopes? Or tell us Greta is the new scientific messiah?

You do realize the site you posted is full of shit right? Breitbart simply wrote a narrative along with a couple hundred other news outlets. Breitbart did not make up the results. Skeptics made up the false narrative FAKE NEWS because they singled out Breitbart and not the multitude of other authors.

Why don't you translate the actual results from the poll and post them here so we can all see them. That would be facts, wouldn't it? Your link so kindly dismisses the poll on the basis they can't read Swedish. Quite convenient don't you think. But yet they say Breitbart is wrong.

Here is a poll I took today. 100% of the people I talked today about climate change say it's a scam. Dispute this.

Still waiting for your response from EF?

He knows how polls work. He posted the most one sided poll I have ever seen and in a few months we will probably see Candidate Poll 2.0. Oh, and I predict it will only support democratic candidates and leave out data from republican candidates just like the last one.

‘’The Swedish public has voted that climate change spending has been the biggest waste of taxpayer money in 2019, according to a poll by the Swedish Taxpayers’ Association.‘’

Only it wasn’t the Swedish public...small detail they left out there!

Did a bit of reading - The Swedish Taxpayers' Association (Skattebetalarnas förening) is an association and taxpayers union in Sweden which advocates low taxes and efficiency in the public sector.

Sounds exactly like the taxpayer watchdog groups we have here both nationally and more localized at state and county levels.

A cross hatch of people who are concerned how the officials spend their money but ultimately have little control of how the money is spent.

Duck Nut, “The Science of Coercion” by Stephenson, iirc, lays out the history of the “poll”, from selection of participants and institutions, to the $ behind it, to its value in moving public opinion as desired. Hard to find, but worth the trouble. Seymour
