Time named Pollster.com one of the 50 Best Websites for 2009, a list that also included Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Pollster.com was partly an outgrowth of Blumenthal's Mystery Pollster blog, which he started in September 2004. In May of 2007, along with Pollster.com co-creator Charles Franklin, Mark received the Warren J. Mitofsky Innovators Award for Pollster.com from the American Association for Public Opinion Research. In 2005, the National Council on Public Polls awarded Mark and the MysteryPollster blog a special citation for its work explaining polls to the Internet reader.
