It's come time for me to do a little more research on surveys and polls, which I will be using for my paper. Dr. Burton suggested micropoll:
I've also looked at:
I've also researched different polling websites to find cautions or concerns with polling, to determine the best ways to conduct a poll, to get the most useful answers, and use those answers in an ethical way.
The Pew Research Center for The People and the Press (http://people-press.org/methodology/faq/)has some useful links about collecting survey data and Questionnaire design, and I've been browsing their website.

1. What do you think are the limitations of polls and surveys?
2. Do you have any suggestions for survey sites or books that I should look into, either that perform polling functions or that analyze and critique the process? So far I haven't found any specifically dealing with polling in academia.
3. Do you have a favorite polling website, or certain kind of poll/survey that you like?
