More Coding Fun

Just adding to my post below, this time about answers to "who is John Roberts?" Of course you know he's Chief Justice of the United States. A few favorite answers from the 2008 ANES pre- and post-election surveys:
  • "president of Australia"
  • "Australian prime minister" (John Howard had been PM, so perhaps that explains the confusion here)
  • "director of the cia"
  • A million versions of "never heard of him" or "I don't know."
  • "on Supreme Ct." This is an interesting one. Coded as correct?
  • "newscater for cnn" Misspelling included, but an interesting response. John Roberts is the morning guy for CNN, so understandable. Surprised not more of these.
