19. Delete cookie in your browser and you can vote again and again
Cookie:<yourname>@webcenter.polls.aol.com

Maybe a programmer out there who can write a quick script to vote, delete the cookie, reopen the page, vote, delete the cookie, reopen the page...thousands of times an hour...

I think it may be a case of people not knowing anything about him yet.

27. Still more proof that conservatives are pathetic little sycophants
47% of the polled group thinks that he is the right man for the job?

Hell, I bet 95% of that group don't even know a damn thing about him.

They are just so infatuated with Bush that they will blindly approve anything he does.



Here's a poll I'd like to see:


President Bush is proposing new legislation. What is your opinion of his proposal?

I approve.
I disapprove.
What's the bill?



I'm betting that the results would be something like 50-15-35.


What the fuck is the point of this question, except to prove that 47% of the people who vote in AOL polls (which tend to be fanatically conservative all the time, for some reason) will follow Bush to the ends of the earth, right or wrong.

31. I agree with your opinion of AOL ,BUT the recent polls on Plamegate/
Rovegate etc., showed 70 -90+% disapproval for B* and Rove...This poll was freeped from the beginning. Within less than 1 hour after the posting of the poll, almost 100,000 votes were displayed! It takes about 24 hours for other polls to reach such proportions. (depending on the subject matter) And by recent polls, MOST Americans DO NOT want Roe V Wade overturned...This poll was tampered with; but hey, that is precisely why we have this current administration in the WH...Diebold et al.

33. The poll was whether people approved of how Bush was handling the investig
investigation.

It could mean that some people think Bush is being too open and forthcoming, and should just tell the press and prosecutors to fuck off. Since he's not doing that (outwardly), they may disapprove.

34. There was also a poll that asked straight out (unusual for AOL) should
Rove be fired? I think 93% voted yes...with greater than 100,000 votes cast.

37. Not that I recall...all of the other polls at that time were more on those
lines, including ones from CNN, MSNBC etc. I remember posting about how unusual it was for AOL to pose such direct questions; they must not have like the results, because the poll question was eventually changed to something more ambiguous. I'll see if I can track down the exact original question.

40. I tried, and can't...you could search DU postings if you have the capacity
which I don't currently have. I didn't save these articles (polls, threads) to hard drive or bookmark them, and my postings are only for 48 hours here at DU. I'll see if I can google for AOL polls and Rove (bast...; monster...etc)

41. Can't find anything on DU, but found blogs on google that mentioned it.
No links to the actual results, however.

Sorry I couldn't find it for you

That's more people saying No/I Don't Know than Yes. That's a good sign, IMO.
