Monarch Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 11, 2006 –-
WorldSentiment.com, a leading public opinion oriented social networking site, today announced that 71% of people answering the poll “How confident are you in the integrity and accuracy of American Idol results?” poll have concerns regarding the integrity of the results on FOX TV’s hit show American Idol when the results were aired on Wednesday evening.
“Our polling leading up to last night and even after last night clearly shows that Chris was not the audience’s choice to be voted off the show and some users wondered if this could be the second time FOX TV does a re-vote,” said WorldSentiment.com co-creator and chief statistician Price Givens referring to the March 23, 2005 MSNBC story “American Idol Gives Wrong Numbers” (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7271702/) where MSNBC reported that American Idol viewers were given the wrong telephone numbers and the performances had to be replayed and a new vote taken.
The polling immediately after Tuesday night’s performances showed 52% believed Katherine McPhee would be voted off compared to only 15% who believed it would be Chris Daughtry. Leading up to last night’s results, WorldSentiment.com polls have correctly predicted the outcome of the past three weeks vote-offs.
