It's heartening to know that in our official and scientific poll
(note: that will only contain the poll results today, but you're welcome to keep on playing it for other things!), all the most important candidates for President were well represented:
(* I lumped in a vote for "Hillary" with the Clinton votes - assuming that the vote for Hillary was not for Hillary Duff, and that the Clinton votes were not for Bill)
(** Hoboma is obviously his own separate entity, riding the rails and making inspirational speeches from boxcars across the country, and not a misspelling of Obama)
I find it somewhat disappointing that the obvious best candidates, Stewart and Colbert, each only received 1 vote, but at least they tied with Cthulhu. Still, to be fair - Dumbwords players know that the goal is to come up with what other people will come up with, not to state your own preference. So I'm sure at least 85% choose Stewart for themselves, but they figured Obama was a more likely guess. It's nice to know I came in second, too. I'm not announcing my intention run just yet, though. Anyway, this poll was a lot of fun... I wish I could come up with more similar questions to put on Dumbwords.
Things look a little iffy for McCain, being tied with both Stupid and Nobody (the anarchist vote?). Not to mention Lincoln, who is, by most common measures, deceased. And of course Cthulhu and Chuck Norris, both of whom would crush us all beneath their heel/tentacle if elected.
The weirdest part is how this extremely scientific internet poll managed to avoid being overwhelmed by Ron Paul supporters! Actually, scratch that, the real question is why is no one voting for Kodos?
