    because they like to think that that is where their "value added" is.

      I missed my calling.  I have to write 5 pages of methods for every report- and I don't get paid extra.  If I write "I don't reveal my methods" do you think I could get the added value of a high profile publication?

        Well, maybe not 5 pages, but, yeah, when I write an article it's gotta have a methods section.  But I think the pollsters' view their methods more the way a software company views its algorithms.
