  • 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.

    You have it right! I get frustrated trying to explain this to those that think the "wealthy" pay no taxes. Even with the tremendous loopholes in the current system the top 10% pay 90% of all taxes! The current system needs to be completely overhauled.The fair tax is the way to go. []

    Here in the UK, we seem to be doing a good enough job of scuttling ourselves, thankyouverymuch, but if you Americans' ship goes down, we're definitely going with you. This should make me very interested in who wins... except that you appear to be equally boned either way.

    No, my interest comes from running a forum where the Politics section is filled with Republicans, all bitching about Obama. If it's their guy screwing the pooch, maybe it'll go quiet. :)

    As to the election itself, and elections in general, Alien v Predator had it right. Whoever wins, we lose.

    it doesn't really matter who will be the next president (unless you're an American, of course).

    Considering that in modern times the president possesses the de facto ability to unilaterally declare war, I'd say the guy in the White House matters more if you're not an American.
