The People's Poll Pollspeak 12-27


I looked at the spreadsheet and you have a lot of inconsistencies .   Example is #7 Syracuse.  You gave the three pollsters ranking them # 5 as near extreme (two spots from their actual ranking), yet you didn't give the four pollsters any negative marks for ranking  Syracuse #11, which is further from their rank than the # 5 ranking. You need to get a more definitive guideline for making your assessment.  Just because someone ranks a team the highest doesn't mean the rank is extreme (example: ranking Kansas number 1 is not extreme when their overall ranking is #3. Being the highest or lowest doesn't necessary make it extreme. If your basis is high low voting, maybe you need to change the name to high-low and near high low voters instead of extreme and near extreme.
