Now that we know these polls mean nothing...I'm beginning to think it's merely a way for sites to get hits to boost the numbers for the site.

I think you're on track. It's also a way to 'create' a cheap news story instead of 'reporting' on one.

It staed that the numbers in blue(right column) represent national results. What do the 'bold' numbers (left column) mean?

How in the word do you answer this question?

4. Is cutting taxes the best way to increase economic growth and create jobs? Taxes are the best way
There are better ways
Depends
Not sure

If what they mean by this: Taxes are the best way is this: Cutting taxes are the best way, then that is the way I would vote, any suggestions?

Is it closed? It seemed to be when I went back in. Seems logical they'd end it if things started moving in the wrong (to them) direction.

As long as the Democrats choose to manufacture polls and stories and rewrite history, they are going to be forever angry...forever misreading the American people and choosing to stand on crap instead of on the truth.

IMHO these polls are meaningless and a waste of time.
They are simply a place for the Bush haters to vent their frustrations.

FYI, I happened to surf into Gloria Borger interviewing someone on an MSNBC program an hour or so after my last post, and she was using the phony numbers from this "poll" to argue her liberal "points." Of course O'Reilly does the same thing on Fox so I guess the bottom line is that even "scientific" polls can be jiggered (and often are), and internet polls are totally unreliable.

I think it is supposed to say 'Tax CUTS are the best way'. Or else it is intentionally phrased that way to distort the results.

Just so you guys know, you can vote as many times as you want if you delete your cookies and then go back to it.

I suspected MSNBC (More Snotty Nonesense By Creeps, aside from Savage, that is) wouldn't be smart enough to log IPs. :-p
