Bayh has serious netroots support

Greetings fellow bloggers,
As you have known since I resumed my blogging in November 2004 that I am an American for Bayh.
A few weeks ago, I posted the link to the poll at Blogging for Bayh, facebook, myspace, etc.--and was accused of poll-stuffing, which I feel was a wrongful accusation.
Anyway, Bayh was running fourth in Round 11 last time I checked.
You might recall that in the previous straw poll, Senator Bayh was running in second until Chris Bowers accused us Bayh supporters of poll-stuffing--and his belief that Bayh did not have serious support. However, this poll validates that Senator Evan Bayh has support among the netroots--and this was after former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner pulled out of the race.
In the newest, late night straw poll, Bayh is running in fourth place in round 11 as of the last time I checked.
The netroots shouldn't just be defined as MyDD or Daily KOS readers as candidates have large support from sites outside of these two major blogs. For example, Senator Bayh has online support through Facebook, MySpace, Gather, and other social-networking websites and blogs..
