What polls mean on Pink Truth

Written By: ScrewU

I was noticing the new ‘polls’ on the side of the front page.  I didn’t really pay it any mind until I started to wonder from someone’s comments that you had to vote more than once if you wanted to see the results, you had to vote again.  Tracy quickly says that you can only vote once but thats just not true.  I know I have voted at least a few times.  So that made me think, what good is a poll if the numbers aren’t accurate?  Isn’t that just a big, fat, giant lie that someone is propagating?  Isn’t portraying ‘results’ of your polls as real when the same people are allowed to vote over and over and over again just the same as MK’s skewed ‘results’?  Can you picture the owners of the Gallup Poll calling the same 25 people over and over again and then publishing those results as real preposterous?  I think so. 

I just never get over the irony of Tracy’s learning to model MK behavior while chastising them.  It’s amazing

When the polls from the front page close, would you like me to post the final results here? You can see the results during voting (I think?) but I can also post the final results here if people want it.

I’d like you to post them. You can see them when you vote, but then you can’t see the results and if they’ve changed when you come back to PinkTruth unless you vote again.

I agree with rawjoy. I would love to see the final numbers without having to vote again and squewing (sp?) the final results.

Great idea, Tracy. mknoway, the polls are on the main PT front page to the right of the first article. I don’t think there’s one going right now, but I could be wrong.

You’re only allowed to vote once. After you vote, you should be able to click on the button to see what the results are.

    Tracy lying again…. Raise your hand if you’re surprised. Raise your hand if you’re not. Yeah, that’s what I thought…..

    Whether they’re overvoted or not, problem is that these polls just aren’t all that interesting IMO. The subject matter is B-O-R-I-N-G!

    OK, I’m a self-confessed political junkie, I just love this part of the four-year cycle in the US. And part of what I love is hearing all these studies people have done about what people in the US think about this or that or the other.

    If TC’s going to go to the bother of setting up polls, why not poll what the people reading PT think about some “issue” going on in the MK world (are they for it? against it? do they know about it yet?) instead of a head count of the latest career status of those who can be bothered to do the poll in the first place. Something worth reading instead of useless pagefiller…
