Let’s Do a Poll!
I’ve been bouncing back and forth on whether or not to try this out. With the Missouri Primary Election just around the corner, I thought it would be interesting to conduct a poll of my fellow bloggers to see how it stands up to the actual results. Of course, there is no way to tell if anyone is voting more than once. Or, if they are jumping party lines – but it could prove to be at least as accurate as those polls that predicted Obama to thrash Hillary in New Jersey or the Nevada pollsters who failed to predict Ron Paul would finish second in the Silver State’s Republican Caucus. The poll is not scientific. But it could be fun. Since there are really two contests going on (and since it is MY poll and I get to make the rules) each participant is allowed to vote in both the Democratic and Republican primary. However, in fairness, I ask that you only vote one time per party. Remember, we are the honor system – so let’s be professional about it and may the best candidates win! Who's Left? One of my advisors suggested that I put down who is still in the hunt in the respective Republican and Democratic party races to the nomination. So, here they are . . . Republican: Rudy Giuliani Mike Huckabee John McCain Ron Paul Mitt Romney Democrat: Hillary Clinton Barack Obama John Edwards
