I tend to agree with Lentz, et. al. (if someone wants to do an edited 
volume proposal on this, I'll help)perhaps the place to start with 
critique of this sort of thing is to demand the codebook if it is not 
publicly available to researchers, it should be provided upon request, 
then we can see the actual questions and coding, and build the critiques 
with that in mind.  While tracking surveys overall do have issues, I 
find the real problem between the lack of parity between the claims as 
presented to the public and the claims that are possible given a 
narrowest or widest interpretation of the information presented that 
could be derived from the data.
