It’s Monday, which must mean that it’s time for a new poll and also time to garner the results of the previous weeks voting.
I will get to that, but first; you probably noticed that we have moved the polling question up to the top of the page… all for your voting pleasure and ease of use.
We are also using a new polling service, so the look is streamlined, the results are quicker, and it cuts down on the possibility of fraud. (Being that we both reside outside of Cook County where the slogan is "vote early, vote often" it just makes sense to prevent voter fraud.... sorry to interrupt folks, Scott)
As for last weeks poll, we asked you: If the election were held today, who would you vote for?
It’s clear that the majority of you would vote for a woman… whether it be the Democratic nominee of Hillary Clinton or the Republican nominee of Condi Rice.
Last week’s results:
- Hillary Clinton 45.7%
- Condi Rice 22.9%
- John Kerry 14.3%
- Kemp & Scott 11.4%
- Pat Paulsen 5.7%
- Newt Gingrich 0.0%
So… it is clear that the majority of you would vote for Senator Clinton.. a whopping 46%. That number does not surprise us, seeing as who our target demographic for this site is. The number that DOES surprise is the unexpected 23% that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice drew from a site that, shall we say, caters to the more left-leaning sort.
John Kerry picked up a worrisome 14% (why worrisome? If he runs again, it will stall the democrats and will easily provide a victory for whomever the GOP runs… so let’s not encourage him, ok)
Scott and I picked up a surprising 11%, and we appreciate your support. (But truth be told, I have a couple of years to go before I am legally of age to become President. Scott on the other hand is of age… and then some… sorry Scott, couldn’t resist)
Perenial Presidential candidate and humorous Pat Paulsen picked up 6%… an incredible feat considering he passed away in 1997.
And last, and certainly least, is Newt…who picked up… nothing (Nelson Muntz-esque 'Haw haw') No votes whatsoever for the former House Speaker… that’s a shame, couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
Those are the results for this week. The new question is above, so feel free to vote now for this weeks question.
By the way, do you agree or disagree with the numbers? Let us know in the comments section. Selected comments will be run in a future entry.
Thank you for your continued support.
