April MyDD Straw Poll
by Chris Bowers, Mon Apr 09, 2007 at 03:24:20 PM EDT
I decided to hold this poll in the evening, instead of the afternoon. The way I figure it, the only people who read MyDD in the evening are the hardcore fans of the site, and I want to see who the hardcore fans of the site prefer in 2008. It might also reduce stuffing, but since I have developed techniques to remove the stuffed votes after the fact, that is only a minor benefit.
Only announced candidates are included in the poll. I will turn off the voting before I go to bed, which should happen at around 2 or 3 am eastern. You can see previous poll results here.
Anyway, go vote in the poll. Let's see where MyDD readers stand on the 2008 Democratic primary.
Update: Kucinich stuffers have shown up. Just so you know, it is a futile effort guys. I can tell when votes are stuffed, and remove them from the total.
Update 2: Stuffers have shown up, but there are still some legitimate results coming in, so I will let it slide for an hour or so.
Update 3: It took me about an hour to remove all of the stuffed votes--and there were some clever stuffers this time--but I still managed to clean everything up. Here are the first place results, from the first 1,652 legitimate voters:
I will have a more complete breakdown of results tomorrow.
