    Two terrific Democrats who know how to stay focused on the issues.

    Taking back the House and Senate means that  Democrats could control the agenda. Though I have to admit a lot of the attractiveness to getting Dems elected this November is the possibility of some real answers about Iraq, a much longer reaching result will be to put Democrats back into position as committee chairs.

    Boxer and Clark both understand that.

    I had to laugh too.... "It's a guy thing...."  <heh>

    Ah, the poll is only a few hours old.  

    The first comment on the poll was posted at 1:52 EDT today (see below).  Maybe the first poster was somewhat behind the initial posting of the poll, but I suspect not by more than an hour.

    (Fri Dec 2nd, 2005 at 01:52:39 PM EDT ).

    It's not over yet, voting is continuing.

    yes, duh.... I do know how an IRV poll works.

    But when your initial ballot (on round #1) reports your vote improperly 1 hour after the poll opens (while votes are continuing) then there's something broken in the script.

    Thanks for asking. The problem seems to be intermittent and may be browser related.  My initial point that (as reported upthread by a different poster) somethings skewy in the script running the thing.

    An IRV poll is not supposed to eliminate any but the bottom vote-getting candidate, not everyone except the top 2.

    Having a little experience with coding, I can tell you it IS working improperly.

    But hey, not everybody is a coder, so whatever!

    So long as votes are being tallied, that should never happen unless something is broken about the poll.

    If I recall correctly, Feingold was first or second last time, so if your vote went to Clark by mistake (the polling software, not YOUR fault) something is really messed up.  Whoever was in second place would not be 'eliminated' till the poll closed.

    These results on myDD may mean less than these internet polls usually do, 'cos the scripts that run it may be screwed up.

    I placed Clark first and the poll indicated that my vote went to Feingold and Clark had been eliminated (Which he hasn't because there are still votes being tallied).

    My office partner voted and the poll reported that only one of her rankings counted too!

    What's the deal?  Seems like a Diebold problem, unintentional though it may be.

    Can you fix this?  If not, I really don't see that it's a valid result.

    Actually there are many Green party members who supported Clark in the primaries......

    Holding 'grudges' over votes decades ago is the hallmark of a small mind.

    So what's your point?

  • on a comment on September Straw Poll over 8 years ago
    What???? Haven't you been paying attention?
  • You obviously know little to nothing about Democratic politics if you think Clark supported the Iraq war.  But I should have know you immediately from the RW talking point about a 'stalking horse".

    Rove tried that in 2003.  Wasn't true then either.
