Question Media's influence on Dark Matter and Dark Energy candidates

Hello. I'm currently completing a Level 3 Extended Project on the theories attempting to explain both the universe's accelerating expansion as well as the galaxy rotation problem -- both of which are extremely prevalent and highly debated topics at this time. I have created a questionnaire in order to gather primary research on the matter, and was wondering if anyone would be open to taking a minute or two in order to aid me. It is anonymous, although it does ask for qualifications as it would be useful to know the experience which you possess.

The survey can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2X8LKFT


Also, if anyone has any other information that might be useful and that they are willing to share, or if anyone would be open to answering some more specific questions, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

There is often an influence from how media friendly a scientist is on how rapidly their idea is disseminated and on how many other scientists rally to the idea.
However, the clear demarcation of evidence will eventually be the deciding factor.
Look at Fred Hoyle and the "Big Bang" arguments.

Universe is a singular noun - in error

perplexity arises in discussions such as this because physics went off the rails when the M-M experiment went bonkers.
THE BB should be referred to as A Big Ban g. They happen all over the sky accompanied by regions where the detritus contracts again to forn new stars?
Each MiniBang evolves into its own Universe which is not the same thing as a multiverse ?
The system is the ultimate example of a perpetual-motion machine.

I think there's too much fuss in that field of study, still waiting for WIMPS and/or other particle candidates to be observed.

Of what use do you think such a poll would be? Going to a physics forum and asking people to take a poll might get you a response but the results might not reflect what you intend them to. All forums consist of groups of various knowledge, experience and expertise. Wouldn't you want a more uniform and set of poll takers? Perhaps I don't understand your goal.

I'm not an astrophysicist or a cosmologist but I do know general relativity and am a physicist so I might be able to help address some of your questions. If I can't then there's a chance one of my friends might be able to, one who is an author of a popular college level GR text which includes cosmology.
