History of eigenpolls
The eigenpoll is attributed to Knud Haugaard Sørensen.
The idea behind the eigenpoll is to let voters compare and rank options. If the option is not present, respondents may add their own. Through a series of selections, a score and rank is computed. These results are continually updated as the polling progresses.
Potential for inaccuracy
The results may be affected by response bias, where the answers given may not truly reflect the opinion or beliefs of respondents.
