Take this poll on N.C. politics

This survey of the current state of N.C. politics is very interesting. Take it and see what you think:

I will try to paste the link below. If it doesn't work as a link, just cut and paste it into your address window.



Link works

But site times out.

The site seemed to work, but...

The site seemed to work, but the page shown when I submitted my answers was an ad, not even an acknowledgement that I'd submitted anything.

I was bothered by this statement:

...most of the proceeds [of the lottery] are being spent on
programs - class size reduction, More at Four, school capital needs for
counties - that were in existence prior to the lottery's inception.

I'm almost certain that More at Four has existed much longer than the lottery. This is kind of a "push poll", right?

Besta é tu se você não viver nesse mundo


has spread the poll to every progressive site I visited today . . . wonder what's up with that?

Not much longer

but it's always been part of the plan to use lottery proceeds to expand More at Four (which is a phenomenal program, btw.)

What is a push poll?

A poll that "pushes" for a particular answer

For example .. " A recent survey has found that people with small pupils are considered sneakier and less trustworthy that people with with regular sized pupils. Are you in favbor or against letting people with small pupils be teachers in our public schools?"

I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you?

You're right!


You are right that I posted a link to this survey on several blogs on Sunday. I have a friend who is considering running for a statewide office, and he wanted to get some opinions from folks who are politically active - on both sides of the spectrum - as to what the major issues are, so I told him I'd help spread it around a bit. I'm a litlte new to the blogging community, so I hope I didn't step on anybody's toes.

When the survey is complete, I'll see if he will let me see the results, if you are interested. Just let me know.

No toes stepped on

I was simply admiring your thoroughness. Would love to see the results.

No problem

Cool. And thanks for putting the link to it on this Web site.
