According to the Brown Daily Herald’s Spring 2018 Poll, the vast majority of undergraduate students don’t want to fill out their survey. “Within a 3 percent margin of error, we found that 9 in 10 students we approached refused to take the poll,” reported poll coordinator Brianne Davis ’19. “Of those students who declined to be surveyed, 67.4 percent simply mumbled an incoherent refusal while avoiding eye contact and hurrying to walk away. Another 12.6 percent of poll respondents returned their survey sheets without even glancing at the questions on the back. There was also a statistically significant association between displaying signs of reluctance to take the poll and submitting a worthless survey sheet with a few incomprehensible markings on it.” Among other results, the poll revealed that 39 percent of undergraduate students actively avoid J. Walter Wilson and Faunce for a couple days after they started seeing Herald pollsters positioned there.
