43. It isn't anything. A straw poll is meaningless. In actual polls,
Edited on Sun Nov-25-07 03:13 PM by Basileus Basileon
Edwards is in the teens, Obama in the 30s, and Clinton in the 40s.

As for your questions: The other candidates lost this poll because it is meaningless, and someone must win. It's like picking names out of a hat. If I were to pick names out of a hat, and Biden were to win, trumpeting that would be silly. Saying, "Well, if it's so pointless, how come Edwards, Obama and Clinton couldn't even win it? Heck, I threw a bunch of other names in there, and my dog won yesterday. If a dog can win it, why can't Hillary?" would be downright stupid.

Straw polls are meaningless. They are not something at all.
