- Barbarosie has AMN coming in at 1.8%, way below the threshold. His polls prior to the 29 July election were giving similar results, and yet AMN comfortably exceeded the threshhold and secured 7 seats.
- Barbarosie gives the PSD 2.7%. This is a party that has suffered through the loss of a co-leader (Musuc) and the recent dissensions relating to the proposed fusion with the PD. There is no way they enjoy 2.7% support.
- According to Barbarosie, 43.7% would want to rejoin the Soviet Union, while 16.3% would think about it. 60% of Moldova's population prepared to countenance a return to totalitarianism? Crazy.
Barbarosie's polls have a tendency to overly favour leftist views. In part this is accomplished by leading questions (e.g. the question about the USSR above came immediately after one which asked "Are you living better than you did under the Soviet Union?"), however I suspect there is also some sampling bias (or worse, manipulation of the data) which needs to be addressed urgently.
Otherwise, perhaps Mr Barbarosie should take up a career writing fiction.
