  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Actually, when my school held mock elections, the Birthday Party won. At the time, I thought it was a problem with the fact that the elections were disconnected from any effect on the electorate of their vote. Some years later, I see that they were distressingly close to the real thing...

    I guess my warped way of thinking just can't embrace the notion of supporting a political party. I understand the need for governance of some kind to maintain social order, I understand being conservative in your views, or liberal, but I question the whole concept of being part of a political organization when so many members of that party are so manifestly corrupt, morally subversive or just plain vile. Why would you want to be part of anything that has even a little bit of rot in it?

    Anyone who watched one of the recent debates (yawn) would know there's really only two parties. And in actuality neither one runs the country. Big Money runs the country, Wall Street, the Oil companies, the so-called Military-Industrial Complex. Therefore anyone who thinks that it makes a difference who wins the election or that there will be real changes or that they will do what they say, well they just haven't been paying attention. One guy has made himself filthy rich by sticking it to the little guy his whole life and the other has done ... well, nothing. God bless America.

    Social Conservative Christians

    Yes, but named just like East Germany was the "German Democratic Republic" back in the day when it only nailed one out of three.
    Social? Consider any social issue such as poor, homeless and anywhere that good Christian charity can help, and instead of doing what Jesus suggested they blame the victims and fill the jails with petty offenders. They are about creating social problems instead of solving them.
    Conservative? No it's about reactionary rollback and almost Taliban style values instead of conserving how things were when they turned up. Which brings me to the next point.
    Christian? Well, yes, very selectively and when it's to political advantage to be seen as one. Go ahead and cast the first stone and twisting passages of the Bible to the exact opposite, after all. Jesus threw the merchants out of the temple so you have to ignore that bit when you've got a franchise of a cult that thinks poor people are cursed by God and should stay that way - there's just no profit in helping them so a merchant in the temple won't even pretend to try.

    Although I understand your sentiment and while I also share your disillusion, did you know that the origin of the word "idiot []" is someone who stayed clear of political life?
    Please don't take it as an insult. By this definition, I'm the foremost idiot here.
