Sometimes, the obvious is just too hard to see. As I looked around the Interwebs for ideas about a Poll Position question today, suddenly it dawned on me: Hey, why not ask about the big, real poll taking place here next week?
I consider myself CONSERVATIVE and my choice for the GOP nominee is:
Total Voters: 150
So, I’ll go with the GOP presidential primary — but with a twist: I’d like you to vote in the poll that fits the ideological leaning that best describes you.
It’s the closest I can come to a kind of cross-tabs for one of these (still unscientific, of course) polls.
Yes, the labels are limited and perhaps overly broad, but I will be intrigued to see if we get anything interesting from the results: Which candidate gets the “conservative” vote, the “moderate” vote and the “liberal” vote.
Then we’ll compare these results to the exit polls from Georgia next week and see exactly how unscientific today’s poll really was.
I consider myself MODERATE and my choice for the GOP nominee is
Total Voters: 102
I don’t have any way to limit folks to voting in just one poll, so this will be done totally on the honor system. So, please, vote early but not often.
I admit from the start that this is an experiment — including the need for spacing out the paragraphs more than usual to make the polls appear somewhat normally on the page — so we’ll see how it goes and whether I should ever consider trying it again.
As always, I encourage you to explain yourself further in the comments thread below.
