  • 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.

    I give money (to Kindle -- I know, I know) for The New Yorker, and for Barron's. I don't subscribe to any newspaper because there isn't one offered that I want to read.

    I actually PREFER the Kindle version of these to the printed version. They are nothing but words. I like words. I don't have to look at pointless pictures, page my way through advertisements, or discover that the article I'm reading is "continued on page 137" (which I hate). The cartoons from The New Yorker are included in their own section, which is a bonus.

    I've subscribed to others on a trial basis, and also found them worthwhile (but there's only so much time in the day). Foreign Affairs is a good one (although it's only six issues a year).

    Not everything can (or should) be read in this format. Sometimes Barron's graphs are a bit rough, but I'm used to it. Words are good.
