4. Was this a scientific poll, or an online voluntary poll?
I'm not accusing, I'm asking, since I don't know. :)

8. I do.
I actually conclude a lot of things from online polls. They give me an idea of which way the Internet people are leaning, for instance. I can also learn which candidates have the strongest activists, based on how the polls differ from controlled polling. It can also tell me about the audience of the web site holding the polls, sometimes. And usually, I find that people polled online are more honest and more informed, in general. Which means usually that if Kucinich is only getting 5% of the vote in national polls, but he does really well in a debate, those taking the poll are more likely to admit he did well even if they aren't voting for him. I think that in general people on the Internet are looking for more in-depth knowledge than one gets from television, and therefore they are more objective about that input. This of course varies from site to site, too.

Which doesn't tell me anything about who is going to win the nomination next year, but it's still fun to watch.

36. His supporters should get off the computer and start talking to real people
Unfortunately, the results of this poll are worthless as Kucinich has a small but very determined group of supporters (mostly online). If they truly want Kucinich to have a chance, they should get off the net and start telling everyone they know about Kucinich. He's running out of time, this must be done quickly.

THOSE WHO REALLY WANT TO HELP THE KUCINICH CAMPAIGN -- DONATE NOW!!


you can do it RIGHT NOW on DU/Act Blue.

If those who care about the issues Mr. Kucinich raises donate NOW HE WILL BE

A TOP-TIER CANDIATE!!


I'm not addressing those who do not support Congressman Dennis Kucinich

and do not agree with him on the issues. I'm addressing those who DO

support Congressman Kucinich and/or do agree with him on the issues:

Donating to the Kucinich 2008 campaign through DU/ACT Blue is very fast.

It's very easy. Do it now!

link:

http://www.actblue.com/entity/fundraisers/12518
---------

Some are supporting Congressman Kucinich because they strongly believe he can win. Others are supporting him because they support his agenda (or at least most of it) and want those issues brought to the center of public debate.

Mr. Kucinich does not have the funding of the top-tier candidates. Corporate lobbyist seeking government favoritism for their special interest wont be writing their $2300 checks paying for access like they do for other candidates. But small donations DO add up very, very fast. That's how the Dean campaign became a significant force in 2004.

So whether or not you are convinced that Congressman Kucinich could possibly win...if you want the issues only Dennis Kucinich raises brought to the public square, if you believe his message of Strength through Peace is important, that the whole question of corporate control of government is important, that single-payer universal health care is important, if you believe American needs fundamental changes; his campaign needs a lot more money then it has in its coffers now.

IF anywhere near half the people who agree with Congressman Dennis Kucinich on the issues sent him a donation -- he would be a major top-tier contender very, very fast:

Donating through DU/ACT Blue is very fast. It's very easy. Do it now! I did...

link:

http://www.actblue.com/entity/fundraisers/12518

He won't be getting a whole lot from the corporate lobbyist buying access for their special interest and paying for favoritism... so ...

PLEASE DONATE NOW ! you can do it RIGHT NOW on DU/Act Blue.

It's fast. It's very easy. Do it now! I did..

27. He has been really sharp in the debates this year
I've laughed out loud several times during the different debates when he spoke. His line about digging to China during the MSNBC debate was priceless. The "praying he'd get called on" was his best one thus far. In 2004 he was portrayed as a joke, but he's been very impressive this year.

61. I'm going for someone I think can win and has the ability to
fix the mess that Bush is leaving behind. Yes, I am an idealist in many respects, but I'm also pragmatic. My idealism would be ill-suited at this in time history to rule the free world. I was not trashing my idealism or DK. I think he is a remarkable person, but not necessarily the right choice for "president".

I was unaware that my profile was "disabled". Expressing my views is hardly "mucking the waters". Your tone is unnecessary and inappropriate.

If you were going for someone who can win, you'd go for Hillary or Obama - at least MSM already declared one of them the winner. Biden? Say hello to Clarence Thomas when "clearing the messes". Pragmatism my ass!
here's your "winner" at his best - and this one he didn't plagiarize:

Rice Takes Center Stage at Confirmation Hearing
Democrats Press Nominee on Iraq
By ANNE GEARAN,
http://aolsvc.news.aol.com/news/article.adp?id=20050116 ...

However, Biden also had blunt advice for European critics: "I have one
simple message: Get over it. Get over it. President Bush is our
president for the next four years. So get over it and start to act in
your interest, Europe.''..........

I just set up my profile recently and I didn't know that it was disabled. I have no reason to lie and no reason to hide my profile. Of course, you might as well disable your profile, as it says absolutely nothing about you.

I am confused by your animosity. I guess we are here for different reasons. I'm not out to pick a fight with anyone and probably shouldn't have responded to your posts. Guess I let you push a button or two. Won't happen again. Have a great evening!

Not only voting for the IWR (when their constituents flooded their offices with phone calls and letters begging them not to) but voting to give the Bushboy unconstitutional powers, when they're mostly lawyers and should understand the implications of their vote.

Edited on Mon Aug-20-07 02:12 PM by mzmolly
I was a constituent who pleaded and demonstrated against the war, but I don't think Dennis's tactics are intelligent in the long run. He should indicate the positives about Democrats and his opponents while mentioning what sets him apart.

I was a Dean supporter in 2004, I'm not opposed to calling out other Democrats. But, I prefer that we do so in a thoughtful way.

Kucinich did not support choice not so long ago, yet he claims to be worlds ahead of everyone else. Notice how he doesn't get questions on HIS flip flop? He gets about two softball questions in every debate, and uses them to lambaste other Democrats. Not very smart or "forward thinking" sorry.

55. I can live with a change on choice easier than with one on war (especially when it's
words vs votes). I believe DK has had a chance to vote his new position already - unlike say, Edwards who made noble noises about the SCOTUS decision confirming Federal partial Birth Abortion Act after he himself forgot to show up to vote against it.
DK is definitely one of the more credible candidates out there.

I happen to disagree. I don't think DK has been challenged, by the media or the other candidates. And, I think once again, that's because he's not taken very seriously.

Never said he was a media darling, just not a serious contender in the minds of many. That explains the few questions he got last night. He and Gravel were all but ignored, along with Dodd.

60. Kucinich always does extremely well in the debates
so I'm not surprised he did so well in the poll.

62. I hate to bust anyone's bubble...
but Kucinich was in 3rd place until his page at MySpace sent out an all points bulletin for supporters to flood the poll.... hence the huge gain at night and into the morning. I tracked it and chuckled to myself.

These online polls really mean nothing more than who can get people they know to vote the most for them. But quite frankly, if it will get him more air time at debates... I'm all for it. To think this in any way symbolizes a cross-section of America's support... sorry, don't think so.

64. Next time lets beat Hillary by getting more people to vote 100 times each on some stupid online poll
I hope Kucinich wins but for christ sake please stop posting online polls, they don't mean a damn thing.

66. Were Hillary's supporters forbidden to vote in that poll?
My guess, after the initial tie, other people - like me - who do not have a horse in this race, felt encouraged, and cast their vote for DK.

69. Lets be real.
Some DK web site or blog out there saw this poll, had hundreds if not thousands of their users flood that poll while other Hillary blogs didn't give a crap. That happens here all the time, I'm sure you are familiar with DUing or Freeping a poll. The point is these polls don't mean a damn thing, if you want to believe otherwise you certainly have that right.

71. I don't go DK's blog. I read of the poll here and voted. Lots of progressives
did same. or you doubt now that progressive exist? That they should have a vote?
To me the polls that ignore our existence are as suspicious as this one is to you. You got used to MSM giving your candidate a free ride (as the designated loser to GOP-er), that any upset must be illegitimate.

73. My Candidate?
Edited on Wed Aug-22-07 01:45 PM by Pawel K
My candidate is probably going to be Kucinich. If you are implying Clinton is my candidate you are way off base, she would probably be the last person I would vote for in a primary. My statement comes from my own programming and web development experiance. If ABC published the IPs of the people that voted I would bet you 1 million dollars right now that most of the people voting for DK were repeats.

It would take 5 minutes to exploit this poll to show results any way you want it, almost as easy as exploiting a diebold machine. If you want to believe this poll I guess you believe the 2004 election results? Do all DK supporters a favor and concentrate on something that matters, wasting your time on polls like these does nobody any good.
