Interesting. It would not take my No vote. It’s 73% yes.

When I just went back and tried again, it said I had already voted. I suppose it may have taken the vote and failed to move to the next page. I have no way of knowing.

Wouldn’t take my NO vote either. It’s a Vast Left Wing Conspiracy.

I agree, but after I voted and it seemed my vote wasn’t taken, I came back and tried again. It then said I had voted. Again, I don’t know if it took my vote or not.

The vote counter is still advancing, so it is taking votes. Not sure if it’s taking our votes, but what the hey...

I thought about trying that as an experiment, but I’d rather die.

Yep, dead text links are usually used for posts about unwelcome websites like DU, then the reader must go through the painful :'new window, copy and paste' set of steps.

It definitely took my no, but only after I temporarily allowed all scripts on the page. Used to be you could just identify the poll script and allow that, but I guess the sites are getting wise to the likes of the NoScript browser plugin.

It’s currently 70% yes, but at the bottom, it said “You voted for this”. Does this mean I voted “yes”? Because I voted No.

Freeped and bumped.

C'mon, freepers, freep this poll.

Every time a poll appears for our plucking, there's always the usual contingent that climbs on the thread saying it's "fixed".

It took my 'no' vote and the 'no' vote of my freeper neighbor.

This is the "Washington Compost", fer cryin' out loud! Their readership is probably damn near 100% lefties. I'm surprised we're doing as well as indicated.

I believe in PUSHBACK...we won't win this poll, but the enemy will know we're out here. Our goal should be to push our percentage up as high as possible in the time available, especially since it's this bird-cage-liner, commie newspaper.

Pour it on....this is a Freep....this is what we're here for, to do things like freeping polls, even losing them......and we don't want to discourage others from doing so.

So...let's get to work! We can always get SOME lemonade out of lemons!

Now hear this from the past...."Hard pressed on my right. My center is yielding. Impossible to maneuver. Situation excellent. I ATTACK!" (General Ferdinand Foch, 1st Battle of the Marne, Sept. 1914)

“I figured it’s rigged, just proving it so you don’t have to.”

I figured it was rigged too. But I think that’s a good thing. If they were confident enough to put out an unrigged pole I’d be more concerned.
