Please help me unfreep this poll on Hagel & the filibuster

http://www.courant.com/news/opinion/todaysbuzz/hc-is-gop-abusing-filibuster-in-blocking-nominee-for-defense-secretary-20130214,0,5424260.story

Are Senate Republicans abusing the filibuster by blocking a vote on Chuck Hagel?

Yes. Before this week, no nominee for defense secretary had ever been denied a confirmation vote with a filibuster.

No. Chuck Hagel is a terrible choice for defense secretary. Top Republicans warned Obama to pick someone else, and he defied them.

Yes. Republicans resorted to a record number of filibusters in the last Congress to block Democrats at every turn. This latest example shows the GOP still doesn't intend to let the majority rule.

No. The Obama administration could have avoided the Hagel filibuster by releasing information it's withheld about Benghazi. But Democrats would rather whine about Republican obstruction
