Poll question: Whom shall we throw under the bus as the election draws nigh?
Everyone seems to have their favorite group that should keep quiet so we can win next week. Who's yours?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

4. No, see the idea is we want to *appeal* to the right
I think SUVs are a-okay.

7. Let's not do this anymore;
it's just stupid and divisive- otherwise known as flamebait. I hope the mods shut your thread down double quick time.

11. Also known as satire
to point out unpleasant truths. But your mileage may vary.

25. I'm surprised at the reaction this poll is getting
I'm pointing out a very unpleasant thing that seems to be happening on DU, but this is called flamebait by some.

I guess if it makes you feel uncomfortable and combative to think about it, you have a reason for feeling that way.

You're "pointing out a very unpleasant thing that seems to be happening on DU" because "it makes you feel uncomfortable and combative to think about it, you have a reason for feeling that way."

30. Why discriminate?
Throw them all under the bus. Anything that distracts "middle of the road" voters or makes us a target of the far, far right must be jettisoned immediately.

33. Ah! How right you are
It is kind of like ballooning. We (I am in at least two of those categories) are the ballast: as the hot air cools and the Democratic balloon sinks, we are jettisonned one by one so that the elected officials in the gondola can glide a bit longer.

My bad. :hi:

32. All of the above, of course
Don't you know that winning is the only thing that matters?
:sarcasm:

Unfortunately, winning IS all that matters to some, and they're willing to throw anyone under the bus to achieve that.

40. Why not put up the converse poll?

The "I am a {member of an offended group}, and I think my interests and agenda should f-king trump all those of you other kinds of Democrats- after all, the Party has to be about ME ME ME and my needs or I'll just whine and refuse to vote until it is" poll.
