that "poll" was not posted on drudge until a few hours ago yet claims to have been up a whole day, Walker already had 46,000 votes or so when it was posted on drudge and at first it said it was closed, that hat wearing neocon stooge Drudge is playing y'all

Well. This is one of the reasons that I often try to tell people not to just go participating in polls. A poll that originates the way that you mention here is a great way for others to measure...oh...activism? Is that the word I want to use?

And there are other reasons we don't want to just go voting in these online polls. They tend to generate a false sense of reality and then that ends up biting you in the rear end when you really need to figger on some things down the road.
